Cole's Volleyball Tourney


It is that time of year again when we raise money for a great cause that's near and dear to my heart. This year the volleyball tournament will be hosted on March 11th at the high school. If you would like to make a donation in the form of drinks or baked goods that would be appreciated.

Also, in addition, we are raffling off:
- two OSU football tickets in the A Deck vs. Army on September 16th. The tickets are $10 each or 3 for $25.
- a yard rock valued from $150 to $200 with engraving. Chances are $5 each or 3 for $10

These are the cancer awareness shirts we are selling this year!

Roby Bach Memorial Scholarship

Roby Bach was a retired principal and teacher from Northwest Local Schools. He loved volunteering in the schools and helping kids. He passed away suddenly on December 25, 2015. We would like to encourage all Northwest staff to support the Roby Bach Memorial Scholarship Fund. Mr. Bach was truely a positive force in his personal and professional life. He was always there to help anyone in need. The money generated for this scholarship will directly help a male and female student from Northwest and New Boston. I know that Mr. Bach would appreciate this generosity directed toward students!

Memorial contributions may be made to the Roby Bach Memorial Scholarship Fund at any US Bank Branch.
