McEachron Elementary students, led by their principal, Vic Williams, serenaded shoppers at Joann Fabric’s grand opening celebration on Thursday, February 12th. While there, the students also received a check for $2,000 to buy craft supplies for their school. The supplies will be used to make bracelets that the students will sell to raise money for new playground equipment.
Store manager Tim Davis was on hand to present the check. He said that, though many community groups had applied for a grant through Joann’s “Inspire the Community” program, “(McEachron’s) story touched us the most.”
Students will begin selling the wristbands at the McEachron PTO Pancake Feed and Silent Auction, which will take place on Saturday, February 28th from 7:00 am to 11:00 am in the school’s gymnasium. After that, bracelets can be purchased by calling the school's office at 438-4430.
