Thanks you SO MUCH for your support, keep up the good work!! I just brought in 16 bags of pop cans!!  Just a few reminders:  There are Brommer bags, in the closet across from the office that you can take home and fill up.  Just fill to the proper line on the bag. Brommers has boxes to that your bag can go into to make is a little easier.  Also, if possible, please keep cans, bottles and liters separate in your bags so we don’t have to spend so much time separating. Finally, if you want to bring your bags right to Brommers in SIoux Center, you sure can.  Just bring them in and tell the ladies they are for Ireton Christian School and please have them write it in the book.  Any questions, please ask.  Thanks again for your support in this way, Angela Dekkers
