Thanks to everyone who brought in clothing, food, toys, financial support, etc. for the Simpson and Larsen families
so far. We would like to continue our drive through out the week.  NHS will be collecting household items and
supplies as well as taking monetary donations.  You can drop these off in room 135.  Also, we will have a donation 
can out at lunch for people to give.  Every little bit helps.  Thank You!

For all of you that don't have Facebook, there was a very nice Thank You on there from Crystal Larsen and her family
thanking everyone for their generosity, prayers and all the help that continues.

Congratulations to 2nd grader Stella Estes on being awarded the 2014 "Sportsman of the Year Wolverine Morgan
Horse Association". This award is voted on by all club members, not just in her age division.  Also, yesterday Stella
traveled to East Jordan and was also awarded her Year End All-Around PeeWee Grand Champion Buckle for the 2014
season from the Northern Michigan Association of Western Horse Clubs.  This is truly an esteemed honor and great
achievement at such a young age.  Way to go Stella... You make us proud kid!!
