Philip Michael Lauro II

The Philip Michael Lauro II Discovery Room is named for a local child whose family generously donated funds to our children's room as a memorial to their son.  Look for Philip's quotes in a selection of our children's picture books (je):

"I think that I would give the
world Christmas.  Or maybe it
would be Chanukah.  It would
want both; so there's nothing
to worry about."
