Raking in funds for education

| November 3, 2010 | 0 Comments

Jada Dean, above, a kindergartner at Our Lady of the Lake School in Mound, joined her classmates Oct. 29 for the school’s annual Rake-a-Thon. The students raked 24 yards in the Westonka community for residents who were unable to do the work themselves. Local businesses Metropro Inc., Landscaping and Beniek Landscaping Services donated trucks to remove the leaf piles. The fundraiser raised $37,000 through sponsorships from friends, family members, co-workers and neighbors. Submitted photo.

Taylor Leonard and Cheryl Kemunto, both second-graders, also volunteered. Other Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis participate in similar fundraising activities at this time of year as part of the Marathon for Nonpublic Education. Submitted Photo.
