Multicultural Fair

Help  Needed!
 
The Multicultural Fair is coming up at Walnut Grove on December 15th, and we are in need of 30 flag poles to display various country flags in front of the school. We have the flags, we just need flag poles that will screw into the ground to display them. We are seeking a talented person who would be able to construct flag poles about 10ft tall and create a way to stake them into the ground. We would need the poles and stakes by December 1st. If this sounds like something you would be able to do for our school, please contact Jen Heid for more information at jenbackes@hotmail.com
 
Also, one last call for country representatives to signup before tomorrow, Monday October 13th. If you would like to represent a country, please contact Swati Raul  at swarok@yahoo.com

Rockport and NorCal Fire Fundraising Update
We are happy to announce the final results of our fundraising efforts for Rockport Texas and Northern California Fire victims. Together, we have raised a total of $3,630 for Rockport and $1,403 for Northern California fire victims! 

The school district in Rockport has recently created Amazon wish lists for their schools so we were able to use the money to fulfill wish list items. With our $3,630, we were able to buy all the requested books (148 of them to be exact) on all their elementary school wish lists, as well as numerous other items such as ink, paper, paper cutters, hole punchers, bookcases, globes, pens, rugs, stools, clipboards and more. Our efforts fulfilled a very large portion of all their lists.

A representative from their District has expressed their sincere appreciation and gratitude to our entire community! They say THANK YOU SO MUCH!

And with the $1,403 we raised for Northern California fire victims, we were able to donate the money directly to a local credit union that set up a relief fund where 100% of all donations will be dispersed among the 4 affected counties. The funds will go directly into rebuilding the lives, homes and businesses affected by the devastating fires.

THANK YOU to every single person that contributed!  Together we made a difference!
