To raise funds, the Alcohol Education Committee (AEC) held a “pop and cake walk” on Feb. 22. With numbers taped in a circle on the floor, participants walked around to playing music. When the music stopped, a number was drawn.
The individual standing on the number was declared the winner and awarded either a cake or case of pop. The games were followed by a dance for children and adults.
The committee successfully raised about $1900 from this event alone. Clara Noah, treasurer of AEC, explained the money will be spent towards an office space and supplies as well as a bingo license. She believes a bingo license will be a benefit for the community and provide additional funding for the AEC. The current goal is to raise $2000.
Another fundraising event will be held at the community hall on Mar 4.
This time the AEC will be selling coffee at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
“And during our fundraiser with the coffee we are hoping we can provide activities such as: board games and card games, so the people can sit chill and talk for a bit on their breaks,” said Noah.
