The Bottle Boys invite everyone to help them celebrate the amazing success of the “One Dime at a Time “fundraising campaign, this Saturday, May 21, at the track in Blue River. The Bottle Boys will be joining the community celebration being sponsored by Locals Helping Locals and presenting donation checks to the groups being supported by the income from bottles and cans collected from our community.
The campaign began in the aftermath of the Holiday Farm fire in an effort to raise funds to rebuild the O’Brien Memorial Library in Blue River and the tremendous response by folks contributing their deposit beverage containers made it possible for them to extend their outreach to assist with the rebuilding of the community center in Vida and the Fire Station in Blue River.
With help from our McKenzie Strong community, the Bottle Boys are hoping to continue the commitment of donations to the library and offer funds to help sustain others, such as the community center in Rainbow and our park in Blue River.
Please bring donations of bottles and cans to the track this Saturday between 1 and 4 pm and help us fill the recently donated Bottle Boys truck. The Locals Helping Locals are promoting the free event as a Spaghetti Drop and are asking folks to bring a quart of your sauce to add to the pot! Bound to be a good time and a great chance for our community to gather and celebrate.
