Each year our Rushford-Peterson High School students volunteer to reach out to selected groups of past or present RP Community members to inform them about the Foundation for RP Schools and solicit donations. This year's drive will be held on Saturday, February 18 where students will contact potential donors over the phone, email and Facebook. Donations will be accepted through the end of March, and if you are interested in donating, please click on the DONATE NOW link on our homepage, or contact a Foundation Board Member.
Our 2nd annual Fall Feast and annual foundation meeting was a success. There were around 30 people who attended and enjoyed a night filled with great music and great food. The music was put on by local pianists and R-P choir students directed by Jessica Ingvalson. We enjoyed appetizers and drinks catered by Judy Christian and the main course and dessert catered by Rodney Thompson.
The weekend of October 7 and 8 was our 3rd annual Conquer the Bluff and Tri-City Challenge. We were blessed with beautiful weather and some great participants and volunteers.
To see many photos and results from the Tri-City Challenge, visit our Foundation's Facebook page.
