Update: Million penny project
By Thanksgiving, Perham Heart of the Lakes students hope to have 100,000 pennies. By May, a million.
At this rate, a couple dozen grade schoolers might accomplish what district residents couldn't at the November 4 levy referendum vote: raise additional money for the school's operating budget.
The "Million Penny Project" is nearly one-tenth of the way to the objective.
