Scotland County Keeps On Giving
The outpouring of support from the Scotland County community continued last week for the survivors and the victims of the terrorist attacks on the East Coast September 11.
Students at the Scotland County R-I School District combined to raise more than $1,100 for the American Red Cross. Students at the high school put donations in a fish bowl for a week and ended up with $616.06. Students at the North School emptied their piggy banks for the cause to the tune of $506.22. The checks were presented to Red Cross representatives September 21st.
The Scotland County Fire Department raised more than $6,600 in donations at a soup dinner fundraiser for the New York City firemen and their families on September 22.
Several hundred visitors stopped by the fire station for supper between 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. and helped fill the fireman's boot with donations to make the event a huge success.
The Junction Cafe will continue the firemen's fundraiser Saturday, September 29, by donating the proceeds from all ice cream sales to the firemen's fund. The event, which is being co-sponsored by Anderson-Erickson Milk, will start at 11:30 a.m.
