Fundraising for the Museum
The Souris Hillcrest Museum needs some major renovations. (article linked below for more details)
Some local ladies have stepped up trying to raise some funds!
First up, Kayla Logeot did a fundraiser with Avon! Each spring Avon puts their deet free bug spray up for the option to fundraise to their consultants. Kayla decided to seize the opportunity and see if there was any interest.
"Honestly I wasn't expecting a whole lot of interest, maybe just the 25 to qualify to make the order!" ..Kayla
But to her surprise, she got around 70 orders! She was able to donate $310. Below is a picture of her handing out the bug spray in front of the Hillcrest Museum on Saturday, April 24th, 2021.
"I was very excited when there was a lot of interest and was just happy to be able to do my part in trying to help" ..Kayla
Second Brittany Parham created sweaters and shirts online with Towns Apparel. So far she was able to raise $850 to donate to the Museum!
This is what Brittany said when I asked her why she decided to do the fundraiser,
"I knew this company did fundraisers with their clothes (which I have one myself and love) plus I know they are small-town guys that started this business town's apparel so it’s always nice to support things like that. I figured I could get a pretty good turnout that could go back to the museum."

What a great way to kick off raising money for our beautiful Hillcrest Museum.
Another local business fundraising is the Woodfire Deli. They are offering custom latte art for a donation in their donation box! Make your way down to the restaurant and they will put your business logo, favorite art piece, and just about anything on a latte for you! How cool! Picture below of one of them
