Another event to support Grad activities this year! . There is to be a silent auction on May 12th and the proceeds go to supporting the Grad activities this year. If you, your parents or a local business would like to donate items that can be auctioned off that would be appreciated.
Grads, consider adding your services to the auction. Why not donate your time to help clean up someone’s property or an evening worth of babysitting or whatever skill you have. I know a student at WK who is great with small engines who could do a lawnmower or snowblower servicing that would easily generate some money. That would be worth at least $50. $50 going towards your graduation that you wouldn’t have to pay. Check in with your parents to see what you can do to make this auction a success. Donations can be dropped off at the office any time.
