Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced yesterday that they're expecting their first child! It seems the British taxpayers can expect quite the bill for it, though. Rumor has it that the Duke and Duchess have hired 20 specialists to assist and by the time the baby is born, it could cost close to $2 Million! Meghan is expected to deliver baby #1 in the private $9,750-a-night Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in London. See more of the crazy money they're spending HERE.
According to THIS ARTICLE, "it is believed that the baby will be seventh in line to the throne, following after the baby’s cousins, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. However, the little one will not have the ‘prince’ or ‘princess’ title to their name. Instead, the baby’s official title will either be, Earl of Dumbarton, for a boy or Lady Mountbatten-Windsor, for a girl."
I bet that will look good on a business card!
This week we visited Jason, who was working at home today but is going to deliver the rest to his co-workers at the office ;)

Chris from Logan High School's Interact Club stopped in this morning to talk about the 4th Annual iFeed!
Created in 2015, iFeed is a proclaimed holiday in La Crosse. iFeed is a one day event that brings the greater La Crosse community together to help alleviate hunger in the world and our own communities. The fourth annual event is organized by seven area high school Interact Clubs and their Rotarian advisors. Interact is the high school equivalent of Rotary that focuses on teaching servant leadership.
Involves packing 100,000 + dried meals in assembly line fashion. The past two years they have shipped these meals to Nicaragua.
Part 2: Includes the collecting of non-perishable food items in the weeks preceding iFeed. The collections are all brought to Logan High School November 3rd for the area's largest food-drive. The items will be counted, sorted, and transported to the Hunger Task Force to be distributed to area food banks.
During Rotary iFeed:
26,278 food items were collected
78,102 meals were packed and sent to Nicaragua & Puerto Rico
32,474 food items were collected (about 12 tons of food)
62,484 meals were packed and sent to Nicaragua
30,212 food items were collected
54,718 meals were sent to Nicaragua
This year, they are planning to crush last year's numbers, shooting to be the largest one-day food drive in Wisconsin EVER! Please bring any non-perishable food items to Logan High School on November 3rd!
