Activities and Fundraiser...

Wednesday, June 17th, we will be having our combined activity. We will be using this activity to get things ready for our fundraiser, which will be held on June, 20th. The fundraiser is being held at the ward building and all youth are expected to participate. We are asking for the help of parents as well, as it is imperative for our success. Parent support is also important as it shows support for your child, the youth and the Presidency. Monies obtained from the fundraiser are being used to pay for youth camps this summer, as well as a youth trip that is being planned for July. Even if your child isn't planning on attending both, if he/she is planning on attending one or the other, he/she is expected to participate. We are still looking for donations for the bake sale and yard sale, so please rummage through your closets and shelves for items to donate. The pancake breakfast and hamburger lunch are also ways for use to raise money, so support there is greatly appreciated! If you have any other questions, please speak with any member of the YM/YW presidency.
