The remaining proceeds will be disbursed to the various senior class drug and alcohol free graduation parties, food banks and other youth activities.

I wonder if this community knows the wonderful people who live and support activities that go one here, such as: The Cub Scouts and the Boy Scouts and the Girls Scouts. Some of these were honored at a banquet. They are from left, Dan Karel, Aleta Coppernoll, Shari Chaffee and Roger Burgess. These people have given above and beyond what is required. Their efforts have been an encouragement to the community and to the scouting council. The program has grown leaps and bounds because these people stepped forward and have given their all. They were recognized at this banquet but the community needs to recognize them so when you see them, tell them thank you. You can also support their programs by buying popcorn and cookies and other things they sell for fundraising. If you didn’t know, they also do roadside cleanup because of those that don’t have the community spirit and litter. You might just see them picking up trash and I believe the last time they did they got over 20 large bags of trash. Now don’t quote me on that because it could be more, what do I know, I just stay home and send my hubby Roger to clean up. Well I just want to acknowledge their efforts and commend them for their commitment and their love for this community and the kids that live here. by Jane Burgess.
