       On January 17th, Councillor Eleanor Pydde and Town of Millet C. A.O. Teri Pelletier were at the Millet Elementary School to make a donation of anti-bullying books, a banner and 60 t-shirts. An FCSS Grant provided the funding for the donated items. These items were donated to kick off the yearlong Anti – Bullying campaign in Millet.
       Linda Graham, a volunteer for the pink shirt committee, was also on hand to help present the books to the Millet Elementary School Library, Griffiths-Scott Middle School Library and the Town of Millet Library. The t-shirts will be split between the Millet Elementary School and Griffiths-Scott Middle School.
       In her speech Councillor Pydde told the children “Bullying can happen any place, anywhere, anytime. It could be on the school playground, class room, work place or at home. Today through cyber bullying anyone can be attacked on Facebook, e mail or texting.”
       The anti-bullying campaign is to raise awareness in hopes of diminishing incidents of bullying in the community.
