We had someone donate beef to the school for us to sell as a fundraiser.  There are 2 lb packages of ground beef, roasts, steaks, soup bones.  If you are interested in some, please stop at school to purchase it.   We only have a few weeks to get it out of the school’s freezer before hot lunch supplies arrive.  The best time to come is when a secretary is in the office or Tuesday/Thursday afternoon when Marlin is in the office.

Prices can be found on the back side of this note.
