Lustgarten Foundation Fundraiser
$1,253 Raised for Lustgarten Foundation Fundraiser by Knit/Crochet "Club"During the month of December, the Knitting and Crocheting club, under the direction of Mrs. Jean Galima made a goal to raise $1,000 for the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Research, in memory of beloved music teacher Betsy Cohen.
In preparations since the fall, the Middle School students have been spending their lunch period with Mrs. Galima learning how to make a variety of hand-crafted items, such as wreathes, Oreo cookie magnets, pot holders, book marks, tissue covers, along with the usual scarves and hats.
Holiday shopping was a one-stop event in the Commons with the beautiful hand-crafted gifts made by the Middle School students.
Thanks to the generosity of time, talent and support by the entire Middle School community, the goal was surpassed with a total of $1,253!!!
