Tonawanda News — Jenna said when she came home, her grandmother’s letter was hanging on the refrigerator.
Here’s part of it: “The Diocese of Buffalo should look for other things they can cut. The school is the most important necessity for the children. I should know, I worked there. Shame on you for even thinking of closing St. Francis of Assisi,” Mrs. Holtz wrote.
“Rest assured my grandmother will also not go quietly in the night,” Jenna said. “I will do everything in my power to make sure that her letter is received, even if I have to personally deliver it myself. The decision that the Diocese of Buffalo so selfishly handed down to close St. Francis left so many students, teachers, and community members shocked, including my grandmother. There is no doubt in my mind that our city will continue to fight for what is right.”
