What do you get for collecting 10 million pop can tabs?  A visit from Ronald McDonald.

The famous clown entertained Arbor Park students with his juggling skills and magic tricks and thanked them for their continued efforts to collect the tabs to help support the Ronald McDonald House in Omaha.

Each year for the past 16 years, Arbor Park students have been collecting and bringing in pop tabs.  During this school year, the fourth and fifth grade students donated 520 pounds, which adds up to 778,500 tabs. This year’s collection brings the grand total to 10 million tabs. Mrs. Rudnick and Mrs. Willis’ classes each donated 83 pounds this year.
