CUSTER — Mason County Eastern elementary students recently collected bottles of water for the residents of Flint. As a reward, the class that collected the most water, third grade taught by Scott Hansen, had a special visitor Thursday morning. Pediatrician Kari Leikert was read a book to the class about helping others. She also spoke about the dangers of lead in water and also in paint.
