Not only did everyone get a bag, each bag was labeled and each child was called by name.  The smocks may make you anonymous but the old folks remembered that these were individual people.  Of course, they'd probably known most of them since birth.  I love this neighborhood.

It's the educational version of your New Year's Resolutions all thrown into a pot and set on fire.
