Big Bay de Noc's Kindergarten and Pre Kindergarten classes, along with their teachers and parents, recently paid a surprise visit to Charlene Groll, their Foster Grandma, who is a resident of Lakeview Assisted Living in Gladstone. The children brought Grandma Groll a big cake, along with lots of hugs and kisses to help her celebrate her upcoming birthday.
