The Kixter Reunion was pulled together in my spare time, which there isn't much of. I ran two notices in the Dispatch and gathered numerous e-mail addresses. The opening line of the mass e-mail was, "Please forward this to as many alumni as possible." I depended on alumni to spread the word. I treasure all the alumni and would have loved to have more involved.
Just For Kix (the private business my husband and I own) recently held a Holiday Dance Show featuring our dancers. The Brainerd Warrior Dance Team (which I also proudly coach) was invited to be special guests of this show as well as alumni of the high school team. We chose to donate the generated funds to the Warrior Dance Team.
Private business does not require a committee in order to donate funds, however, we did have one in place to be prudent. The Warrior Dance Team parents and JFK staff worked together on this endeavor. Office employees and dance instructor payroll was not deducted from the proceeds by our choice. It was our pleasure to make this generous donation to the BHS Warrior Dance Team Program.
