Valentine’s Day can be a very stressful time. Does one tell a crush that you’re interested? Do you send flowers or chocolate to that special someone? What if you freeze up and can’t say the words when the time comes? What can one do that is special and unique and on a budget these days? How can you let someone out there know that they’re special while still remaining anonymous?
The Dupree JH/HS Student Council helped many answer those questions last year with “Gorilla Grams”, and this year, they helped again with a new spin- they did “Chicken Grams”.
The fundraiser was promoted as a perfect solution for those who may be “too chicken to tell a person that they may be chick’n out to tell how they feel”. Another tagline was a way to make someone about feel “egg-stra special”.
For only $5, Malory Peacock, the very outgoing and entertaining vice president of the DHS Student Council, danced to music and with the help of students, delivered boxes of chocolates and messages that were written by the purchasers to many people throughout Dupree School.
She also did one special request at the Cenex, and as a gift from the student council, as she delivered boxes of candy to senior citizens as they enjoyed their lunch at the Ranch House Cafe on Valentine’s Day.
In the end, each year the fun fundraiser has brought many giggles and smiles as joy and love is spread throughout the halls on Valentine’s Day.
