Mayor Lynette Rinker filled the roles of civics teacher and tour guide Wednesday, as she welcomes four four classes of first graders from Cornelius Elementary School to Town Hall.
The kids also got a lesson in government, sitting in a brief “town board meeting” where they had a hard decision to make: What to give up in exchange for funding a new school swimming pool. (One class agreed to give up snack time.)
Here are a few scenes from the morning.

Kids were led by classes onto the athletic field by Captain Awesome, one of the energetic leaders of the event from FundRunners, an Atlanta-based group that helps schools raise money through runs like this one. Read the full story
