A rainy fundraiser on Saturday; a car wash to support the Southport High School marching Cardinals brought in more than $2000 dollars to help the band. Saturday was actually the “rain date” from the originally planned date for the car wash fundraiser. It turned out to be quite rainy for the first 2 hours of the wash but that did not stop the customers from coming by. Several cars come through for a wash and many simply stopped by with monetary donations. Those donations totaled over $1100 dollars. In addition, Ray Skillman donated $500 to support the band. The kids had a blast and the rain did not dampen their car-washing efforts. We would like to thank all that stopped by to help support the Marching Cardinals. […]
Abraham Lincoln 4th Grade students are learning about force, cause and effect, and constraints with their STEM lessons.
