Fireworks Sales A Success

We were open June 27 through July 5 and it was hot. Anyway, in the process we helped support 5 community groups, made money for the Jack Carr Memorial Scholarship and scraped together a few dollars for the society.

The raffle winners: Connie Hayden won a homemade Uncle Sam and Jim Unrein received a $400 family fireworks package.

We will call this wonderful fundraising activity spearheaded by Daryl Futhey and Rhonda Carr Cooper a terrific success.

Two Old Photos Added

Janelle Showalter has graciously provided two more nice pictures of early Rose Hill basketball players. They are the last ones on the Old Pictures page. We are hoping to identify more of the folks so if you recognize anyone please let us know.
