Good manners pay off for Gabriel's House youth

(Continued)

DUNCAN —

“They all looked so proud and were really well behaved and respectful,” said Buchanan.
“It’s a neat thing because a lot of kids would never have this opportunity. (McCormick and Mikel) do this out of the goodness of their heart and they have been supporters for years.”
Buchanan and the Gabriel’s House staff hope that this example of how actions can have either good or bad consequences depending on behavior choices will teach the children, especially the ones who missed out this time, how to better behave in the future.
“I really hope they learn a life lesson,” Buchanan said. “We hope they will take this lesson with them throughout life when the consequences could be much worse and painful than just missing out on a fun time.”
