SPECIAL TO THE VINDICATOR: Students at St. Patrick School in Hubbard, a Lumen Christi school, recently had a holiday dress-down to benefit needy families. Students and staff members paid $1 or more to be able to dress casually for the day. The funds raised were donated to families in need this holiday season. Students have the dress-down days once each month to help charities and families in need. Among those participating at this event above were, from left, Cooper Muccio, Daniella Hosack, Katie Cigolle, Jordan Serano and Giavanna Hosack.
