Easton 4-H Club collecting your old shoes


by Debbie Smith

    The Easton Trotters 4-H Club is collecting shoes as part of a country-wide 4-H project. There is a collection box at the Easton Odd Fellows’ Hall in the entry, as well as at the Mars Hill Town Office. These shoes will be collected on Sunday, June 10, by the Aroostook County 4-H Club officers and sent to the organization www.donateyourshoes.org. These will be distributed around the globe.

Keep saving Box Tops

    As the year winds down, please remember to keep collecting your Box Tops for Education. Next year the school will be continuing the Box Tops for Education program, so keep clipping.
