This Monarch coin was released today to Andy. Andy shares a passion for the Monarch Butterfly along with me, my mother, and my great niece! He has learned so much through his research, talking with other Monarch fans, and through hands on experience in rearing his own Monarch at home. He has even learned a little from the Riverdale Elementary Kindergarten team and students! Andy is a photographer for our local news station. He is capturing the amazing life cycle of the Monarch through various lenses. His talent in capturing the life cycle will help his viewers gain an appreciation for this beautiful creature that visits us every spring and summer. Because of his passion for this little critter of nature and his kindness in sharing it, this coin is passed on to him. Thank you Andy for having the idea to create this news series and for all of the time you have spent with the Riverdale Kindergarten, as well as with my mom and great niece, learning about one of nature's coolest creatures! I hope you find someone who also spreads kindness just as you are doing and pass this coin along to them! Do good and fly on Andy!
