Horace-Mann drawing to raise money for international workshop
Northwest's Horace Mann Laboratory School is holding a drawing to raise money in support of the Villa 2 'Ville cultural initiative.
Villa 2 'Ville was created by Peace Corps volunteer Andrea Tappmeyer, who serves in the small, rural community of Villa Sandino, Nicaragua, and is seeking to create an international partnership that will bring eight Nicaraguan teenagers to Maryville for a two-week English/leadership workshop in early 2010.
Tickets for the drawing cost $1. Winners will receive one of six birdhouses assembled by students in Horace Mann Instructor Lynette Tappmeyer's second-level class. Lynette Tappmeyer is the mother of Andrea Tappmeyer and the wife of former head Bearcat men's basketball coach Steve Tappmeyer.
Purchase tickets at the lab school office on the first floor of Brown hall (suite 142) or the Maryville Hy-Vee supermarket. Donations in any amount to the Villa 2 'Ville project are welcome and will be accepted at the lab school office or the office of Dr. Max Ruhl, dean of the College of Education and Human Services, on the second floor of the Administration Building.
The drawing will take place Wednesday, July 29, in Horace Mann's second-level classroom.
