A tremendous THANK YOU to Kelly Weiswasser who organized and ran all of the contests for the day, including the cake eating, mummy wrap, water balloon battle, tug o’ war, etc. Thank you to Logan Meyer and Jess Gleason for all their help running the kitchen and keeping me in line with food requirements. A colorful thank you to 8th graders Keelin Gouldin, Tali Parliyan, and Kayci Fox who did a beautiful and professional job with the face painting. Thank you to Miranda Coppola who stayed all day to help set up and help out wherever needed. Much appreciation also for Yvonne Modica who has helped to decorate the school entrance every year!

We are excited to announce JR Lions Cheer will be participating in some community outreach programs this year with the help of one of our JR Lions Cheer Mom’s Dina Pinto.
All canned or non-perishable dry goods donations are welcome. Collection box is located outside the Conley main office.
The first program – a Food Drive for the Open Cupboard Food Pantry will be taking place the entire month of September. The food pantry is in desperate need of items as donations dwindle over the summer months. We are asking for 100% participation from our JR Lion Cheer Family’s in our weekly donation boxes.
