    Thank you Ms. Lynds for this very nice article.  We actually received three donated PlayStation game systems from the folks at MMG, as well as all the computers and equipment.  They also donated a large number of games and all the controllers for those games.  MMG and MSSM helped us reach a goal our Executive Director, Stephen D. Eyler has had for quite some time.  We simply cannot thank them enough. We would personally like to thank Kris Mehta from MMG and Cyndi Trapnell from MSSM.  Cyndi and her students have worked very hard in our shelter and they have been a joy to be around.  We look forward to working with MMG and MSSM in the future!

    The printer and scanner came from members of the Presque Isle Kiwanis Club, as did several computers that will be delivered to the library soon (still working on those).
