For the second year in a row, Friends of Barron sponsored a picnic get-together for our scholarship student and their sponsors. The lasides of Barron got together and prepeared a hot meal of chicken poblano tacos, beef machada tacos and fried fish. It was delicious! FOB encourages our students to establish independent relationships with their sponsors to promote the multi-cultural experience.
