In-decent-seas dragon boat team in full fundraising mode
AINSLEY CUNNINGHAM competitors who have decided to put their talents into forming a boat of their own.
Despite being newbies to the races, In-decent-seas has set themselves a goal of $3,000, one of the highest fundraising goals at TRHS. Led by captains Kayla Hazel and Emily Tower, alongside their teacher advisors Jordan Leblanc and Lisa Wells, all members of In-decent-seas are gearing up, ready to show the others exactly what they’re made of. With this goal in mind, they have decided to help support the local area animal shelter in Amherst. With multiple fundraisers planned, they are excited to be able to donate as much as possible to this worthy cause.
On May 6 and 13, the rowers were on hand at the Sackville Farmer’s Market to raise funds. With homemade crisp, cheesecake, cupcakes, cheesecake, brownies, banana bread and more, the rowers were up bright and early to excite your sweet tooth. The rowers would like to thank everyone they saw at the Farmer’s Market for their hand in attaining their fundraising goal.
Delicious treats seemed to be a theme with this boat, as they also sold cookie dough and raffle tickets on a Maple Basket, representing a maritime treat.
Pumped and ready, the rowers began selling these tickets back in April, all to have as much raised as possible when the time comes to donate to the animal shelter.
In-decent-seas would like to extend a massive thank-you to all those who helped them in their fundraising. They would not be where they are without the support of the community, parents, and the staff of TRHS. Every donation makes a difference, and they are extremely grateful for all of yours. The rowers were happy to see everyone at the Farmer’s Market, and they hope to see you all down at Jones’ Lake behind Hillcrest school on June 2.
