Recognizing Bellringers

Obviously, it is hard to be outside during November and December - it's cold! However, each year hundreds of volunteers come forward to help ring bells for The Salvation Army.  In 2009 we had numerous groups and individuals that braved the cold to help and have a chance at winning some great prizes!

Special recognition goes to:

Cub Scouts - Jo  Siegfried (left), Den Leader for Monte Cassino Cub Scouts Pack 344,  Den 5, accepts plaque for First Place for raising the most money at one location during a 8-10 time span. Den 5 raised $1448.92 in front of the Reasor’s at 15th and Lewis.
