Making a Difference in Our Community by Focusing on Women’s Health
Received from Teal VanLanen – In October we focus on Women’s Health issues. Across the United States women’s health issues, especially breast cancer, gets a national spotlight. Pink is the color of our solidarity with the nation in this effort. That spotlight shines bright close to home, in Algoma. We’ve had such a tremendous outpouring of support in regards to our Pink Out Games—we have sold 350-ish pink “We Back our Wolf Pack” shirts! We hope to see many of you at the volleyball game(s) tonight and at the pink-out football game next Friday the 14th.
Over the course of the past two weeks, our middle school students have worked to fold 1,000 paper cranes for the Algoma Volleyball games on Thursday, October 6th. According to ancient Japanese legend, anyone who has the patience to fold 1,000 paper cranes will be granted good fortune and health. The cranes will be placed in the bleachers at tonight’s game in hopes that fans will take the cranes home or give them to someone else as a symbol of good fortune.
At the volleyball games, starting at 5:15pm located at the Algoma High School, we will also have some very exciting information to share with you about a “special guest” that will appear at the football game on Friday, October 14th. Hint: it’s not a person!
Please support these very special events and the students and adults making it possible. Thank you.
