The Builders Club has held it's first two meetings of the year, and we are also about to hold our first two fundraisers of the year. Members decided that a fundraiser for Breast Cancer Research would be appropriate, as October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Builders Club members will start selling pink pencils and bracelets reading "Join the Fight" next week during lunch periods. Pencils will be $1.00 and bracelets will be $2.00. The club hopes to raise $500 for breast cancer research by the end of the month.
The club will also be holding it's annual bake sale on Meet the Teacher Night, next Wednesday. This fundraiser has been a good kick-off fundraiser for the past few years, and has raised money for club supplies throughout the year. Gym bags, tee shirts and other items will also be available at the bake sale.
