Important Information:


The trip will be June 9-14th.  The trip will be an extra day because we are unable to travel at night time. We will leave in the morning on the 9th and we will return in the evening on the 13th. The cost is not completely set at this time. The projected cost is about $200 more, so about $1000. There will be fundraising opportunities to help with expenses (see below). 

The trip is open to all students because of the disruption from COVID. The committee would like every student to have the opportunity to attend this trip. We must have a minimum of 40 participants to maintain the cost of the trip (to be announced). The bus holds a maximum of 50 people. 

Lodging Information: There will be 4 people per room, students and adults of same sex only for initial price. Having less people due to different situations will cause price increase. 

Fundraisers:


Participating in fundraisers is optional, but they can help defray some of the cost of the trip. Here is a list of the upcoming fundraisers:

Bottle Drives:
We have two bottle drives tentatively set for Saturday, November 26th and April 15th.  They will begin at 9 am and end at 2 pm. Proceeds from bottle returns will be divided among those who participate in the drive. You must be there the entire time from 9-2 to get your "piece of the pie." More information to follow.

Santa's Workshop: 

Santa's workshop is scheduled for December 15th and 16th. The workshop will take place during the school day. The Rotary Student will be working this event during the day, and will receive a percentage of the profits. 

Students have two opportunities to share in the proceeds from this event. They must attend and participate in one or both of the following activities. 

  • December 7th- 3-5 pm set up, price items, and prepare wrapping supplies.
  • December 16th- 3:30 -6:30pm- Santa workshop for parents and public. There will be a bake sale and raffle. We ask that students work and donate a bake good or raffle item. 

 McDonald's Pancake Breakfast:
This is usually held in February. We are looking for a person to chair this event.

Past fundraisers and ideas:

Great Lakes Promotions: Preview their fundraising brochure at: https://greatlakespromotions.com/brochures/, work day (raking yards, shoveling snow, etc...), Pizza Hut serving fundraiser, Little Caesars, cookie dough.  These are a few ideas. We are looking for parents and students would like to coordinate any other fundraisers.
