Proud of that Permit
We have another teenager on the road ladies and gentlemen. 15-year old Hanna Condon just secured the privilege this week. She’s in the ninth grade at KWHS and plays the saxophone in the marching band. We asked her if driving in Old Town is a challenge with the narrow streets and one-lane roads and she said, “no! Not at all! I have to have a grown-up in the car with me before I’m off on my own.”
