'Crunch' gives a lesson in bullying at PWMS

Crunch the Wolf, the official mascot for the Minnesota Timberwolves basketball team, was in Perham last Friday to put on an anti-bullying program for local students. Kids in grades kindergarten through six from all public and parochial schools in Perham learned to "Be a Buddy, Not a Bully" during Crunch's presentation in the Prairie Wind Middle School gym. Through games like tug-of-war and sack races, Crunch showed kids the benefits of being a buddy versus the pitfalls of being a bully. Later that night, he performed again at the boys basketball game.
