SWCC Athletic Fundraiser 2009 Buffet

Thank you to everyone who helped make last Friday’s SWCC Athletic Fundraiser a record-breaking success!  More than $13,000 was raised, which becomes a record for this annual event.  Approximately 190 people attended the event, which was held at the Creston Elk's Lodge.  This year’s event came close to breaking the athletic fundraiser’s attendance record as well. According to Bill Krejci, SWCC athletic director, this was the highest netting, one-night fundraising event in SWCC history.

Krejci would like to extend a special thanks to the attendees, the local businesses who contributed in various ways for the event, committee members for help planning and selling tickets, and private parties for donating personal collection items for raffle and auction. We hope that you will be able to join us again next year.

Daycare GroupAUGUST 10, 2009--A group of approximately 25 children from I Think I Can Daycare's before and after school program spent the morning on campus.  During their time at Southwestern, the group spent time completing a project in a computer lab, playing dodgeball in the gym, eating ice cream at the student center, and visiting the dorms. 

The group often has field trips to visit businesses and organizations throughout the area.

Thanks, kids, for visiting SWCC!
