The Spangler Candy Co. is located in Bryan, Ohio, which happens to be Ms. Russell's hometown. Ms. Russell told her students that she can remember elementary field trips to the manufacturing plant to watch the lollipops being made. Ms. Russell contacted the Spangler Candy Co. about a small donation of lollipops to throw during the 2018 CCHS Homecoming Parade. The Spangler Candy Co. answered that request with 2,338 lollipops free of charge. The company spokesperson told Ms. Russell (via email) that the Spangler Candy Co. was touched that more than 40 years later, Ms. Russell still remembered the field trips to the plant and they would love nothing more than to send a little piece of Ms. Russell's hometown to her students. Thank you Spangler Candy Company for your generosity.
