Set for Sat. Feb. 23, 2013
The History Center is now looking for Rocking Team sponsors ($100 donation) and Rocking Teams. Call 320-679-1665
Here's how this very popular rocking chair fundraiser works. Teams of rockers are sponsored by area businesses and organizations. Individual team members compete by seeing who can collect the most pledges. The rocking takes place on Sat. Feb. 23 from 7 am to 7 pm. in the Coin School on the History Center grounds. No one individual rocks the whole time, team members sign up for a block of time that they will rock. Money is raised through team sponsorship @$100, by team members collecting pledges and through visitors who can drop in through out the day to make pledges.
There is also food and fun for the rockers and visitors. Cory Stanchfield, Rockathon chairperson and organizer, puts out a grand buffet throughout the day. She also sets up the two rooms of Coin School, one for the young people with games and prizes and the other as a quiet room for reading, sewing, conversation etc. There is also a prize for the team member who gets the most pledges.
Come join the fun and make this the best Rockaton Fundraiser ever!!
