SHIAWASSEE NEWSBOYS COLLECTIONS UP
Posted by Durand Now at 10:11pm 12/17/12
The Old Newsboys of Shiawassee County were at
high traffic intersections on Friday, selling their
annual newspaper and collecting funds in order to
ensure no child in the county goes without a gift this
Christmas.  Despite a hiccup that took the
organization off of a couple of city intersections for a
few hours, more money was raised this year than
last.  This year's total is $16,248, up $368 over last
year. 

This year's paper announced the Durand Chamber of
Commerce transition from the Toys for Local Children
campaign of many years past, to becoming an Old
Newsboys partner, assisting in the Shiawassee Newsboys fundraising efforts, joining the Durand Eagles, Moose Lodge, AmVets and Burns Township Fire Department.  It also included photos from last year's auction party and an Old Newsboys history.
