We were very happy to once again receive a phone call telling us that Red Lake Rosie was the charity of choice for the Red Lake Elementary School which had a penny drive this month.
On March 9, 2010, Jolene Tallchief, the RLRR Chairperson, received a check for $155.27 from all the kids at Red Lake Elementary School -- kindergarten through fifth grade students.
Cadie and Michelle were the teachers who coordinated the event and LaReatha Bradford had a huge part in the penny drive, also. She was in charge of all the heavy work - lugging all those pennies to the bank!
Kevin brought Reilly, a springer spaniel mix, to the school to meet students and Jolene brought a cat that had strayed to her house and was on her way to the shelter.
We want to thank all the students, parents, and teachers for their generosity and kind thoughts towards the Red Lake dogs and cats.
