East Newton gifted students need money to attend Odyssey of the Mind world championships

Our band, Natural Disaster, had the pleasure of performing at a fundraiser for the East Newton Quest (gifted education) students Friday night as they continue working toward raising enough money to attend the Odyssey of the Mind world championship at Lansing, Michigan.

Due to continuing budgetary problems, the school district is unable to finance the trip, and even after the fundraiser, more money is needed to make the trip possible for the students.

Those interested in contributing to this worthy cause can do so by sending a check to East Newton Quest Students, 22808 E. Highway 86, Granby, MO 64844. Mark it "Attn: Livvia Seufert."

The accompanying video shows a portion of the students' reader's theater performance of a scene from "Hamlet."
