Woodie Dowdy C2E

Challenge to Excellence school has been such a great supporter of the Edwards Foundation. This spring they had a fundraiser for us and the students could donate money and wear an outfit of there own choosing. They collected a hefty sum made up of nickels, dimes, dollars, and even quarters. This bag weighed almost 50 pounds, When we took it to the bank, they put it in a big machine to count.  It took almost forever. The grand total ended up being $1,988.70   Thank all of you for your generous donations. 

Standing in front of the hay that was paid for in most part by the money collected from C2E. Ms. Chapman and her crew are awesome.  And after their visit, another envelope containing $48 was found!

Duck Babysitting Ducklings

 Here are many new little duckling.  Many people buy ducks chicks and bunnies in the spring time without the proper time, energy, space, and facilities. When people do that they soon want to get rid of them so we end up with them here. Instead of getting a duck go get a chocolate duck.
