“This is my favorite thing, I’m having so much fun,” said Oil City High School junior Leah Fox (right) as she visited her Seventh Street Elementary second-grade pen pals Brianna Hornbeck and Kayson Geib Wednesday morning.

Teachers Christy Szafran at Seventh Street and Brigid McIntyre at the high school have had their students write back and forth for years, but this year was the first time they got the kids together to meet.
