2005 ROCK–A–THON NEWS
On Nov. 18-19, 2005 the Granville / Tolland Citizen Scholarship Committee held our 2nd annual Rock-a-Thon, with 25 kids attending from the towns of Granville, Tolland and Southwick. They arrived at 7:00 p.m. and within minutes the Town Hall was filled with rocking chairs, pillows, blankets, games, movies, food and of course, kids. They brought in pledges to the total of $1,566.00!!!!!!
Our top rocker brought in $305! Way to go Naomi Orcutt! Our 2nd place rocker Kristen Simeone raised $190, and Erica and Amy LeFebvre in 3rd with $180. Raising over $100 this year were Stephanie Saulenas at $170, Kristopher Hayden at $125.00 and Ashlyn Stromgren at $111.
Thank you to all 25 rockers for your time and effort in raising $1,566.00. We would like to thank Jackie Orcutt for providing music for the evening, and Jim for picking up our pizzas. Jim Deming and Sue Voudren for helping to chaperone the evening. Big Y and Walmart for their generous donations, Southwick Subway for 2 trays of delicious cookies and Granville Scoop for their fabulous homemade Ice Cream.
Thank you to our neighbors, friends and families who sponsored these kids to spend the night in a rocking chair, and thank you to the parents who arrived promptly at 7:00 a.m. to pick up your children!!!
Cindy Saulenas and Joanne Simeone
