To the editor:
The Houghton Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization thanks Joey's Seafood and Grill in downtown Houghton for holding a successful fundraiser for our PTO. Thanks to the generosity of Joey's and the support of Houghton Elementary School families, staff and the larger local community, we were able to raise $500 for the PTO. In addition to all who came out in support of our event, we also thank SmartCreative LLC for designing the posters and fliers for our fundraiser. The money we raised will fund gym equipment, playground resources, library books, field trips and other educational events to benefit the students at Houghton Elementary School.
Thanks again to all who supported us and especially Joey's for their partnership. When local businesses partner in support of our public schools, our community grows stronger.
