Upon hearing news of Florence Township Fire Department’s devastating fire and loss earlier this month, teachers and students at Edon Northwest Elementary School knew they wanted to do something for their friends. Reaching out to the school community, supporters not only helped students achieve their goal, fifty dollars per classroom ($800), but helped them surpass it by raising $2,168.85 for the department!
On hand for the May 22, 2015 presentation were, from left, front row: Camden Trausch, Cale Sheline, Skyler Whitney, Dakota Merritt, Kyler Sapp, Kendoll Brigle, Alexis Breier, Jarrett Trausch; middle row: Skylar Osborn, Blake Dulle, Peyton Trausch, FTFD Chief Jay Klingler, Jobe Carlson, Emma Clark, Meghan Matthews, Levi Favourite, Nikki Collins, Kalon Weaver and back row: Bo Aldrich, Corey Oberlin, Dan Ankney, Henley Dye, Hayden Dye, Cody Bockover and Scott Powell. Before leaving, firefighters spent time expressing heartfelt thanks to each student for all they, and the Edon Northwest School Community, had done.
