McConnellsburg SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) held its annual Snowball on Saturday, December 18, 2010. The theme this year was “2010 Northern Lights.” The students enjoyed music by DJ Dusty Sowers, had an opportunity to play “Rock Band,” Dance Dance Revolution, Wii, get their pictures taken by Kristen Earley Photography and enjoyed glow sticks galore.

The middle school had its Snowball from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and, at 4 p.m., the middle school students crowned its new princess, Michelle Bottenfield, and prince, Colton Strait. The students voted on raising money for two community organizations: the American Cancer Society and Helping to Save the old MHS building. Each middle school student was given approximately three weeks to raise money for these community organizations.
