Lake City Spring Fest board member Daniel Haynes presented a $1,000 check to Riverside West Elementary Principal Lee Ann Harrell for alternative seating and other autistic items for the special education program.

Katie Evans expressed to Ms. Harrell the interest for the items to be used in her classroom. This is Ms. Evans first year at Riverside.

Funds were raised at the Lake City Spring Fest and the committee donated the money.

The Lake City festival is held each year and the committee members want to give back to the community.

"The festival is for our community and the surrounding area and we appreciate all of the support we received to make it successful," Haynes said.
