Fourth graders create posters to raise funds for nursing home

By Kelsie Hoitomt

GLENWOOD CITY — The Glenhaven Auxiliary has been reaching out and working with the community in an effort to raise funds and awareness of the new addition to the nursing home.

In their most recent endeavor, they asked the fourth grade students at the Glenwood City Elementary to create posters for their Coffee Break and Bake Sale event.

From the students in Mrs. Tiberg’s and Mrs. Utpahl’s class, the auxiliary chose the top three award winning posters by voting at their last meeting.

The winners were Molly Draxler- first place, Bailey Kahler- second place and Alexandra Peterson- third place.

Their poster can be seen hanging on the windows at This, That and More on Main Street.

The Coffee Break and Bake Sale is scheduled for Friday, November 7 and Saturday, November 8 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. both days inside Glenhaven.

Aside from coffee, desserts and some dice games, there will be members of the Glenwood Area Historical Society present for a book signing.

Sixteen members from the community have come together to write chapters in a book titled “Echoes of Our Past: The Way It Was”.

The book has a variety of stories from life back in the old days with some that are funny, some that are informative, some sad, and some that are just filled with history.

The book will be autographed and sold for $15.
