(Foundation Vice President Delmar) Hunke reemphasizes the mission statement.
“The purpose of the foundation is basically to raise money for education. This is not for athletics, for the FFA, or band or any specific group, it is something that will benefit all the students in the district,” he said. “It is more geared toward education in the classroom. Also, it is set up to bring awareness to the patrons of the district, as far as some of the needs of the district. Hopefully, we can get some corporate sponsors and some funds from people that. This is a venue that they can give to and they can take it off of their taxes… and help the district.”
According to foundation organizers, meetings are held the third Monday of the every month in the Camerer-Faules Administration Building on the East Newton High School campus. For more information on the upcoming barbecue, contact either Hunke at 638-5398 or Alan Cook, president, at 472-7747.
