Student seeks aid with report about Illinois

Published: Tuesday, March 19, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

My name is Gary. I am 10 years old. I am in fifth-grade, and we are doing state reports. I have been to your state three or four times. I hope to get a good grade. 

I would like postcards and pamphlets. Also, a state flag and carvings. State rocks would be a big help, too. My school’s address is: Conway School, 19710 State Route 534, Mount Vernon, WA 98274.

I am very excited about doing the state reports. I would be very happy if you sent me items from your state. Please send me as much as you can. This will help me get extra credit.
