A CART HAS GONE MISSING
A parent was kind enough to lend us a black metal cart for Harvest Festival and it has gone missing. If you happen to know its whereabouts, please contact me immediately so we can return it! Black metal with a thick rubber handle across the front, small label with a red K. Many thanks. We used it to transport cans during the Harvest Festival.
