The Dyersburg Hess Lodge recently held a fundraiser and then donated all proceeds to Holice Powell Elementary School. The lodge sold smoked turkeys for Thanksgiving as a way to raise funds to support the Choctaw Blessing Boutique at HPS. Representatives from the lodge presented a check for $1,000.00 to the school. Mrs. Leah Jacobs and Mrs. Rena McKnight received the check for school. Mrs. Leah has been instrumental in organizing the boutique. The funds will be used to purchase items that are needed in the boutique. The boutique will provide clothes, shoes, coats and snacks to students with a need for these items. The Hess Lodge plans to make this an annual fundraiser in order to continue supporting the school in this endeavor.
HPS is thankful for the support of the Hess Lodge. Representatives from the Hess Lodge are Tommy Criswell, Sam Warren and Mike Lamb.
