Family donates to Fallston High

The McCracken family, proprietors of C.R. Wings in Bel Air, recently presented a $1,575 donation to Fallston High School's PTSA and Cougar Boosters, which the parent organizations will share jointly.

The donation was made in conjunction with the "Watch Kimmie Skate" promotion, where a percentage of the business' total sales from the days of Kimmie Meissner's Olympic performances were donated to the school.

The original intent of the promotion also was to help the Meissner family with Olympic traveling expenses. However, the Meissner family donated its third to the PTSA and Cougar Boosters.
