It was yet another example of sportsmanship and neighbor helping neighbor when the New York Mills Sports Boosters made a generous donation to Wadena-Deer Creek Athletics this week.
On Tuesday, November 9, W-DC Activities Director Norm Gallant, accepted two chcks from Jake Norton, representing the New York Mills Sports Boosters. The checks totaled $1,240 and will be used to replace high school athletic equipment lost in the June 17th tornado.
The money came from two seperate fundraisers...a burger/brat feed prior to the Wadena-Deer Creek vs. New York Mills volleyball match and New York Mills tennis team donated part of the funds it raised during the 2nd Annual Celebrity Tennis Tournament.
"We'd like to send out a sincere thank you to our friends from the west," said Gallant. "It has been truly humbling to see the out pouring of support for our students and our communities since the June 17th storm. We truly live in a great part of the state and the students, parents and community people of New York Mills are no exception."
