Menahga students raise money for new Wadena-Deer Creek High School library
Menahga Dollars for Scholars "Pennies in the Elementary" raised $1,111.41 for the Wadena-Deer Creek High School Library. This year's DFS theme was "Cents for Wadena Students." Pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and dollars were donated and delivered to each Menahga Elementary classroom from April 11-15. Top row, from left, Menahga seniors Lindsey White and Megan Melander headed up the Dollars for Scholars project and presented the check to Wadena seniors Jared Wegsched and Molly Barrett. WDC activities director Norm Gallant was also on hand for the presentation. Menahga Elementary representatives also showed up for the check passing. They will likely make a visit to WDC in two years to see the completed school, which broke ground May 6.
