Kara Schmitt, 10, left, Avah Montgomery, 11, and Ayla Ring, 11, all of Holland, performed knee highs during a group fitness activity prior to the start of Holland Elementary’s annual Fall Festival on Saturday in Holland. Andrea Brown, a former Holland Elementary teacher and current HEROES (Healthy, Energetic, Ready, Outstanding, Enthusiastic Schools) coordinator, said the school received a HEROES grant from the Welborn Baptist Foundation as a health initiative for the schools and the community. The fitness activity took place before the festival with the idea of bringing more people out for the event.
