Benefit raises more than $1,000 for new books for EMS Library
Thanks to those of you who attended the benefit variety show Saturday night in the East Middle School Auditorium.
We raised more than $1,000 toward new books for the library, with a portion of the money going toward equipment for a special education classroom.
The audience heard the East Middle School Band, Show Choir, Cheerleaders, Drama Class, saw performances from teachers Clara Ervin and Randy French, the cast of the Stone's Throw Dinner Theatre production of "Godspell," Natural Disaster, and a series of student entertainers.
The evening concluded with music from the talented mother-daughter team of Tammy and Hannah Cady.
Thanks again to all of the entertainers, the people who worked behind the scenes to make the benefit a success, and all of those who came to watch the program.
Anyone who wants to help the cause, but who was unable to make the benefit, can send a check to East Middle School, 4594 E. 20th Street, Joplin, MO 64801. Donors will be acknowledged in the new books.
