Be sure to turn in your Educational Box Tops at Milano Elementary School by Friday, Feb. 25. It is the last day before the PATCH Club sends them in for funds to help the school. The group has set a goal of $350, and if reached, all elementary students will receive coke float party. Send the box tops with your student or turn them in to the elementary front office.

Students have also begun the PATCH Club’s Little Ceasar’s pizza sales through March 7. Delivery date is April 1 at the elementary cafeteria. The club’s goal is $1,800 and can be met if each student sells just two boxes of pizza. Proceeds from the pizza sales will help the school purchase a marquee sign that will be used by all three campuses.

Orders must be turned in by March 7. Also, as an incentive to sell, the club will award gift cards to the top three individual sellers. The next PATCH Club meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March 8. Due to scheduling conflicts, the Milano Athletic Booster Club’s second annual baseball/softball alumni games have been moved to Saturday, April 2. The new deadline for registration is March 21. Cost is $20 per player which includes a T-shirt.

The day will include baseball and slow-pitch co- ed softball tournaments, horseshoe and washer pitching tournaments, silent auction, concession stands and home run derby. Contact Karen Gray at 979-777-3960 or karen@cunninghamrealestate.com for more information or to get a registration form.

A “Healing Service” will be held 3-4:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 27 at Master’s Gateway Church, located at the intersection of US 79 and FM 3242. For more information, contact pastors Ross and Beverly Cunningham, 979-450-0891.
