PEM Drama Booster Club
Do you have old CDs and DVDs you'd like to get rid of? Considering donating them to the PEM Drama Booster Club! The Drama Booster club will be conducting garage sales this summer during Elgin Cheese Days and Plainview Corn on the Cob Days, selling previously purchased CDs and DVDs for a low cost, $1 to $2. All proceeds will go towards next year's JV and Varsity musical productions.
Please send any CDs and DVDs to the school with your student and give them to Linda Theisen at PEM High School. Or you may drop them off at any time by just bagging them and placing them on the front stoop at our home in Plainview, 410 6th Ave NE.
Thanks for your consideration and donation!
