Thanks to all District employees and to the public who participated in Drive 4 Ur School on Saturday, November 10th--we had well over 200 participants taking 'no sales pitch' test drives throughout the day. We had a very successful event. Thanks also to Bowden Ford and to Ford Motor Company.
Bowden Ford and their employees ran the event by helping participants register and by accompanying those individuals taking the test drives. They answered questions about the vehicles when individuals asked. They were on the job serving our community all day long. Thanks also to the Orange Grove High School Band who played at the event and the Orange Grove High School Cheerleaders who helped meet and greet the public. Thanks also to the Orange Grove Band Boosters for providing the concession stand.
Carrie Del Alamo from Bowden Ford says that we will max out our earnings and should receive $8,000.00 from Ford Motor Company. This will be added to the $1,700.00 raised by parents under the name of Secure Our Schools (SOS) last school year. Other donations may be made as well.
Plans are in the works for some new doors and secure entries at some of our campuses.
