Tsunami Aid / Book Signing / Middle School Steel Frame

Note: I picked up CHS track, golf, and tennis schedules Monday to add to the event calendar (which already has baseball & soccer) ... again ... check back later -- Ted 3/1

March 2 update: all of those CHS activities are now on the March and April calendars -- Ted

Monday (Feb. 28, 2005) started out sunny with progress on the middle school steel frame as students walked to the gym past the construction in the top photo. Around lunch time the skys were full of snow that quickly melted as the ground temperature was above freezing. In the bottom photo, progress was evident at the middle school despite the brief snow.
The Collinsville Community Church and Masonic Lodge combined to present a $5,565 check to the American Red Cross to aid victims of the Dec. 2004 Tsunami. The church recently held a pie auction which raised more than $3000 and the Masons donated an additional $2500. (L-R) H.M. Rogers, Mark Ehnen, Stan Branen, Susan Morris (from the Tulsa American Red Cross), and Jerry Branen attended the check presentation Tuesday Mar. 1st at the Collinsville Masonic Lodge. Susan Morris indicated the Red Cross funds are being used for food, water and medical aid in that ravaged area.
