Snowball Raises $10,100
McConnellsburg SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) held its annual Snowball on Saturday, December 13, 2008. The theme this year was "2008 Christmas Cruise." The students enjoyed music by Heart and Sound Production, had an opportunity to play "Rock Band," Dance Dance Revolution, get their pictures taken by Kristen Earley Photography, make their own music with karaoke and enjoyed Mrs. Susan Cubbage's tropical drinks.
The middle school had its Snowball from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and at 4:00 p.m. the students crowned their new princess - McKayla Keefer and prince Dalton Garlock. Last year's princess, Kylie Pine, and prince, Forrest Plessinger, received the honor of crowning this year princess and prince. The students voted on raising money for two community organizations: the American Cancer Society and Save the Old MHS Building Fund. Each middle student was given approximately three weeks to raise money for these community organizations. Princess McKayla Keefer and Prince Dalton Garlock raised the most money. Their court consisted of Caitlin Lynch, Destiny Lynch, Samantha Bottenfield, Forrest Plessinger and Hannah Ott. Together, the whole middle school collected at total of $4,500, with $ 2,400 going to the American Cancer Society. (Crys Hensley accepted the check for the American Cancer Society.) and $2,100 going to the Save the Old MHS Building Fund. (Robert C. Snyder, representing the old MHS building, accepted the check.)
