The Yarmouth community showed up in force to support this event and raise money to improve the outside areas of the school. Kudos to the Yarmouth PTO for putting together this successful day and to all the volunteers who pitched in to make it happen!

Action Figures Worth Taking Out of the Package

"As you can see from the photo, Commander X definitely captures that retro Mego vibe. Commander X is 8" tall, retails for under 20 bucks and ships with a free Capt'n Eli comic book....this has the potential to be a pretty interesting collection!" ~ Brad Moon, GeekDad WIRED
