Misty Lindstrom and Melissa V. Reid’s 3rd grade classes prepared this little boat for late 2017 deployment.

Read the article here, dated October 9, 2017: “Knappa students build miniature boats in exchange with Japan” – “I believe that peace is only achievable if we know each other, and this is an incredibly important and meaningful project in those terms… We are a tiny community with lots of fishermen.
