While the local events differ greatly in who's participating and who will benefit, the one thing they all have in common is local people giving of themselves to help others in an outpouring of kindness and compassion.
For example, in Marysville last weekend the members of Sorptomist International of Marysville held their annual Junktique sale at Jennings Memorial Park to raise funds to benefit local students, the Marysville Food Bank and the Battered Women's Center in Everett. The efforts of the Soroptimists will improve the lives of many in our community.Marysville schools work to improve student behavior
n The Lakewood School District encompasses such a rural area that some students ride to school in a station wagon driven by a district employee. It is in this rural area that volunteers are spreading the word to make sure the school's maintenance and operations levy passes. If it fails for a second time, several staff positions and nearly all the co-curricular programs, including band and athletics, will be cut. Students at Lakewood High School are organizing post cards and making ribbons to tie on cars. "It's been a really neat experience in that everybody has reached out and volunteered to do things," said Tara Mizell, member of the steering committee. "I think there's a lot more people from the community, there's more involvement this time around," said Paul Pearson. The postcards that are on their way are grouped by sports, school and activities such as band and drama. Leaders of those activities are writing notes on each card and sending them to parents of children on their rosters. "It's all rural so it's challenging to get that word out," said Mizell. "We are trying to hit it different ways."Letters
From M-P pitcher Riley Fritz's seven strikeouts in just over four innings to first baseman Skyler Peterson's dives into the dirt to grab two Arlington bunts out of the air, M-P's jabs against Arlington culminated in a 2-0 loss for the visitors in an April 9 rain date.
Fritz and Tomahawk pitcher Jen Rosie combined to throw a four-hitter and the Tomahawk defense backed them up, leaving Arlington stranded on base six times.
