The St. Joseph Lions Club raised $3,407.36 during their chicken-and-ham-dinner fundraiser held Jan. 20 at Sal’s Bar & Grill. The money will be donated to the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center.
Twelve St. Joseph and St. Cloud students are part of the St. Cloud YMCA Gator Swim team, which competed Feb 19 at the YMCA State Meet at the University of Minnesota. The Gators brought home the high points per capita trophy, again! It’s the fifth time in the past six years. What this means is 29 swimmers earned more points per kid than any other team there. The Gators were the seventh-smallest team with 29 swimmers. They took fifth place overall out of 19 teams.
The St. Joseph students include: Emily Hammond, 11, took fifth place in the 200 breast, 14th in the 100 fly, seventh in the 400 free relay and tied for eighth in the 200-medley relay; and Ella Morris, 10, earned state champ in the 9-10 girls in the 50 fly, 50 back and 400 free relay and third in the 50 free and the 300-medley relay.
