Wautoma 7th & 8th grade Spring Dance Raises $329 for Red Cross

The Annual 7th & 8th grade Spring Dance was recently held at St. Joe’s Parish Hall in Wautoma.  G.L.A.D. (God Loves All Denominations) organizes two dances in the fall and two dances in the spring.  A fee is charged and all the money raised is given to a charity that will benefit residents in Waushara County. 

The money raised from this most recent dance is being given to the local American Red Cross to be used for Adult Comfort Kits.  Containing personal hygiene items such as soap, washcloth, shaver, toothbrush, and toothpaste; these kits are given to adults after disasters such as residential fires, storms, floods, etc. 

The American Red Cross wishes to especially thank Nancy Reilly, DJ Sonny and all the adult chaperones.
