From the Banquet Fundraising Committee:
The Christmas Market was a success. Stay tuned for future fund raising endeavors.
We will be sending out students to deliver donation letters to the community business. Any business that sponsors the silent auction or the Christmas market or the graduation class in any way, we will advertise their names with a sponsor board at grad, in the paper and online as well as the radio.
We can’t accomplish any of this without the help of the Parent Grad Committee and the grads themselves. This only works if we all work together. We know this is time consuming and we like to say Thank you and we really appreciate all of the effort and time you grad parents are putting in. Any help is appreciated, whether it’s a family member who is trying to get a home business off the ground, finding silent auction items or even 1 or 2 hours working at the market. To book a table or donate an item to the silent auction or to sign up please e-mail Lana Allan at firstname.lastname@example.org
News from October 18 Meeting:
Order SPC cards through the office until Nov 27 Order Plants and Pointsettas until Nov 17.
Grocery Cards are now available at the office for fund raising.
