Mentoring groups celebrate successes

Lebanon — The word of the night was Mento at the Mentoring Initiative and Graduation Program dinner Wednesday night at Ulen Country Club.

Judge Jeff Edens, an advisory board member, shared a clip of the television show “Friends,” where a character gets confused and accidentally says that he is a “Mento” for kids.

Everyone in attendance is a Mento, Edens said. The candy’s slogan is “the freshmaker.”

“You’re all freshmakers in the lives of children,” he said. “You may be the only fresh face in their lives who cares.”

And the definition of the candy states it has a slightly hard exterior with a soft and chewy interior — just like anyone who works with children, Edens said.
