First-ever Fall Fest raises $4,620 for band

Wadena-Deer Creek Education Foundation's first-ever Fall Fest on Sept. 25 raised $4,620 for the fifth-grade WDC band program after donations continued to come in this week. The 250 attendees at the event enjoyed picnic-style food while listening to local musicians perform.

"It was wonderful to see and hear the talented musicians we have in our schools and community," said Sue Lind, Foundation board member. "I think everyone had a great time."
