Spreading Cheer to the Community
The Varsity Cheerleaders recently did a trash pick-up in the community. The girls volunteered three hours of their Saturday and covered over 5 miles of the area roadways, picking up whatever trash they could find. Ultimately, they filled 12 huge bags with their findings, leaving Dryden a more beautiful place. Nice work ladies!
Yatsko Honored For Track Exploits
