ATLANTA -- Tuesday night, the Rotary Club of Buckhead thanked teachers in a very "old school" way -- by polishing red apples and getting ready to place them on desks.
The Rotary Club has done this for 41 years. About 100,000 apples later, they are still doing their part to remind teachers of how much they are appreciated for what they do for children.
More than 3,500 apples were polished this week.
"They're delivered tomorrow morning to every Atlanta school, along with our thank you to the teachers," Rotary Club president Elizabeth Gill said.
The apples will be on teachers' desks Wednesday morning.
The Rotary Club has also given more than $125,000 to literacy programs in Atlanta.
