Three Lakes Badminton Tournament FundraiserSubmitted: 03/10/2013
Story By Shardaa Gray


THREE LAKES - Raising money for an entire classroom to take a trip out of state might seem like a daunting task, but that's what one local junior high school is trying to do.

Students at Three Lakes Junior High School are raising money for eighth graders to go to Washington D.C.

It will take $40,000 for all 37 students to go.

The class is just $1000 short of its goal.

"The three lakes community and the sugar camp community support this program," said eighth grade teacher, Donna Welhoefer.

"They support the school to an incredible extent and if we didn't have community members, staff members here at school like we do, we would have never been able to achieve this goal."

One of the students says he's gotten to know his community better and is grateful for all the support.

"It's great to see all the community decide to chip in, come out here and have some fun," said eighth grade student, Tommy Stuckart.

"I couldn't ask for more from the whole community to help us out."

They're also collecting aluminum cans to raise money.

That will go until March 21st.

ARMSTRONG CREEK - Liz Wywialowski gets a certain feeling when she comes back to her old family farm near Armstrong Creek.

"You would see me breathing deeply," she says, drawing in a lungful of oxygen. "Even now, there's nothing like clean, fresh air."

Liz grew up on this farm, and now owns the place, though she lives in southern Wisconsin. Her father built the majestic cedar-sided barn with her brothers, finishing it in 1944.

"He built this barn as if it would be the last barn he would need to build," Liz says.
