To the Editor:
The Mercer Advanced Placement United States History students held their last major fundraiser before their trip to New York City in early April. The Cranberry Inn graciously offered to host the dinner and donated many raffle prizes. In addition to the Cranberry Inn, other donors were Dave McNutt, Fritz Shellgell, Dear Lodge, AHHA Wellness Spa, Louise and Dave Minisan and Deanna Pierpont. Other past donors include The Pines, Margie and Erv Irving, Kelly Kohegyi, Lil-Bits Nursery and the Wolf’s Den.
A big thank you to all who have financially supported our kids to experience a place that they have studied about in school. The kids have been fundraising since May of last year and so many in the community have been so supportive of them by attending a dinner, buying flowers or candy or purchasing 50/50 tickets. We would also like to thank Mr. Torkelson and the Mercer School Board for their encouragement and support of this incredible opportunity for our kids to see the world. Thank you!
