New York Mills Sports Boosters donate more than $1,200 to WDC athletics
On Nov. 9, Wadena-Deer Creek Activities Director Norm Gallant accepted two checks from Jake Norton, representing the New York Mills Sports Boosters. The checks totaled $1,240 and will be used to replace high school athletic equipment lost in the June 17 tornado. The New York Mills Sports Boosters organized a fundraiser with the New York Mills tennis team when they served a dinner during the Wadena-Deer Creek-New York Mills volleyball game.
"We'd like to send out a sincere thank you to our friends from the west," Gallant said. "It has been truly humbling to see the out pouring of support for our students and our communities since the June 17 storm. We truly live in a great part of the state and the students, parents and community people of New York Mills are no exception."
