The Gardner Pilot Academy (GPA) held its annual Friendship Feast at the Allston elementary school. Despite thunderstorms, hundreds of students, parents, staff, elected officials and community partners gathered to celebrate another successful year and to cut a ribbon in honor of GPA's expansion to a K-8 school beginning next year. Through sponsorships, raffles, and a silent auction, the event raised money for Playworks physical activity programs at the school.
