*Drive to Victory is coming in October*

        

Drive to Victory is coming in October.  What is Drive to Victory, you ask?  It is an Interact event sponsored by Goodwill.  There will be a Goodwill truck parked in the HS parking lot the week of Oct. 17th.  There will also be a truck parked in the parking lot at Brookville.  VV is competing against Brookville to see who can collect the most in one week.  The collection is weighed at the end of the week and the winner is announced at the football game.  Goodwill will except just about anything, including cars:)   If we win for the week, Interact gets $300.  If we collect more than any other school all football season, we receive another $700.   The money raised throughout the year in Interact is given to students for scholarships.  Last year, we lost to Brookville:(  Actually, Brookville beat everyone last year and collected the added bonus of $700.  I would love to see us beat them this year.  

So, clean out those drawers, closets, and basements.  The more, the heavier, the better!!!!
