Students raise funds for historical society
Students in Mrs. Cathy Bogart's second-grade class at Normandy School in Bay Village, aided by a few moms, held a cookie sale recently to raise money for the Bay Village Historical Society. As part of the unit on Bay Village history, all second-grade students tour the Rose Hill Museum in Cahoon Memorial Park, and this fundraiser was part of that curricula.
Historical society president Cathy Flament and treasurer Eric Eakin recently visited the class to gratefully accept their $150 donation.
"We cannot thank you enough for this wonderful donation," Flament told the class. "We sincerely appreciate your efforts, and look forward to having you visit our museum soon and learning more about local history.”
