EPC students hold party for area senior citizens

Monday, November 14, 2011

The consumer service class at East Poinsett County School District held a Pink Party Oct. 12 at Stevens Square to celebrate and inform senior citizens about breast cancer.

The class sold chances on a goody basket which consisted of a blanket made by Allison Meyer, a Breast Cancer Awareness cooler, a donated $10 gift card from Sonic in Lepanto, a gift certificate donated by Morgan Michael's Salon, two free six-inch subs donated from Subway in Lepanto, a free deer mount donated by Ben Meyer, a Breast Cancer Awareness t-shirt, blanket, and coffee cup.

The money raised was used to buy items for the Pink Party. At the party, the students played bingo with the senior citizens, painted the women's nails and served refreshments to guests. A PowerPoint was created to display members in the community who have had breast cancer.

Ritter, of Jonesboro, donated 25 Breast Cancer Awareness bags which were given away at the party. The event was organized by Susana Gonzalez, Allison Meyer and Kayla Burcham.

Others helping with the party were Kayla Austin, Carrie Brown, Hunter Carey, Paige Collins, Dalton Clem, Chasnee Grant, Haile Tyler, Wava Westbrook, Linda Masters (teacher), Tabatha Burcham (parent), Tommy and Cameron Burcham.
