Screen Shot 2014-02-28 at 9.55.44 AMTo the generous and supportive community of Seldovia!  This weekend we had the drawing for the Kindle Fire HDX.    Our 7 students got out the door and made phone calls to relatives and friends, and sold $1,925 in tickets to raise funds to attend Close Up in Washington DC this April!  Thankful for the anonymous donation of the Kindle Fire, all those monies go directly to funding travel, lodging and tuition expenses for the trip.

The winner’s name was drawn this past weekend at the High School Basketball tournament, and the winner was Jeanice Janes – Coach Mark Janes’ mother from Texas!   Congratulations Jeanice!  We want to sincerely thank all the generous folks who bought tickets from students, not only once, but twice and even three times!  One local gal said “I’ll buy tickets from anyone who stops by the door to ask!  I love to support our kids and our school and Close Up is a valuable trip!  I just buy a few from each – spread it out a bit!”

Also, we had a baked goods sale that also included a wide variety of items from canned fish, bread, cookies, eclairs to brownies, piroshkis, and two beautiful handcrafted wood items built and donated by Dick Yingling to raise an additional $690!

So, thank you again to the entire community for your endless and continued support of our Susan B English students!
