The second BTVS trip to the Johnson’s Pumpkin farm was another successful outing. Although, we did not have the JGHS Michigan Wildlife class in attendance, we were still able to bring almost 30 students, staff, and parents. Students were once again able to attempt the corn maze, eat doughnuts and drink cider, get a pumpkin, and pet and feed the many animals!
This year our event club originally decided to host a fundraiser in order to raise money for our social events throughout the year, and potentially a school dance in February. The plan shifted to instead have a fundraiser to help a fellow Bobcat in need, and donate to aid in her battle with cancer. On Friday the 6th of October from 4-8 pm at the Bangor Township Virtual School, high school students and parents from both JGHS and BTVS ran a “Parent’s Night Out” event in which parents could drop off their school aged children to be baby sat and entertained. Cosens MMA coaches provided a martial arts seminar, we had a bounce house, video games, movies, and pizza. The event was a great success, but we ended up only breaking even with the cost of the event and monies collected.
