The annual Heart of the Lakes - Dent Carnival is coming on Friday, March 27, from 4 - 7 p.m.
This event is the primary fund raising effort that the elementary schools do each year. Proceeds will benefit all elementary students.
Due to the current financial hardships that District 549 is facing, the fund raising efforts from this event will be more important this year than ever, according to carnival organizers.
Members of the planning committee include Treva Mayfield, Cheri Duboer, Brenda Sandahl, Anna Aakre, Mandi Kjelshus, Michele Arvig-Biederman, Jill Shipman, Lisa Glyn, Jennifer Campana and Trish Satter.
Any family or business can choose to donate an item for the raffle. If you are interested in doing so, please contact Kari Yates at 218-346-1405 or send it to Heart of the Lakes Elementary at 810 2nd Ave. SW., Perham, MN 56573.
Donating to the raffle is a great way to get your business name in front of hundreds of people and support the school at the same time.
