JME Race & Family Fun Fest - Thank You!
The 10th annual JME Memorial Run / Walk was a great success! We had record high participation with 176 racers! Following the race, families enjoyed lawn games, concessions, face painting, a bounce house, and good old-fashioned fellowship. It was a beautiful day spent together. Our Dunk Tank Fundraiser, featuring Lara Polzin, Andrea Dent, Justin Garcia, and Pastor Matyas raised $300! Concessions earned another $370 to make next year’s event possible. A special thank you to Liz Begick for donating event beverages and Gary Behmlander for the delicious Italian Ice. Thanks to all who attended and volunteered. We could not have done this without you! See you next year! – With appreciation from the Garcia and Glasser families and the St. Paul Board of Education
