Yakima Schools Activities Benefiting the Community

IKE CLUB LOOKING FOR SKI DONATIONS. . . The Eisenhower High School Ski & Snowboard Club would like to provide a skiing / snowboard experience to as many interested students as possible this year. One of the biggest obstacles is that it is very expensive to start out learning the sport. The club members are hoping to lessen the cost by providing used equipment to the students via a check-out center. If you have used, yet still functional, ski jackets, gloves, helmets, parkas, gloves, snowboards, skis, boots, goggles, that you no longer need, please consider donating them to the Ike Ski & Snowboard Club. Donations can be dropped off at the Eisenhower High School main office. (Contact: Kaitee Franck, Club President, c/o 573-2642)
