1,000 volunteers help earn funds through rodeo

Each year Holy Trinity Catholic Schools kick off the school year with one of their biggest fundraisers. The year 2010 was no different, as Dianne Huddleson organized the filling of approximately 1,000 volunteer positions at the Tri-State Rodeo in Fort Madison as Holy Trinity Catholic Schools were fortunate to once again have the concessionaire contract. 

All parents of students in kindergarten through 12th grade are asked to work a minimum of one shift.  Students in seventh through 12th grade also are asked to work.

The Holy Trinity Catholic school board has stated that all proceeds from this project will be dedicated to HTC’s general operating budget and to the Holy Trinity Catholic Schools Educational Foundation. As such, all students at HTC in 2010-2011 will reap the benefits because of those students, parents, faculty and staff who shared the burden of the project.
