PHS boosters holds first-ever mattress sale
PERRYSBURG - Perrysburg Orchestra Boosters will hold its first Mattress Fundraising Sale from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 5 at Perrysburg High School Commons.
Name-brand mattress sets will be sold at 30- to 60-percent below retail prices. These are all top quality mattresses with full factory warranties in all sizes and price ranges. Delivery is available. Floor models will be displayed at the high school for one day only.
"The orchestra is very excited for the upcoming mattress sale," stated Mick Smith, PHS orchestra director. "It is a fundraising concept that is new to Northwest Ohio and has the potential to raise a lot of money for the orchestra program. One great aspect of this sale is that we are not asking the students to actually sell any products. Our only job is to get the word out to the community and encourage people to just stop in on the day of the sale and check it out."
Eastwood Teen Institute sends message to fellow students: Stay Alive: Don't Text and Drive
PEMBERVILLE - Eastwood students involved with Teen Institute, a youth-led organization promoting healthy living, spent their recent meeting placing a banner in front of Eastwood High School to try to change a behavior that far too many teens (and adults) engage in: texting and driving.
According to textinganddrivingsafety.com, a person is 23 times more likely to get into an automobile accident if they are texting while driving. Teen Institute, in collaboration with the Wood County Educational Service Center, is hoping that public awareness of the dangers involved with distracted driving will make people put down their phones and focus on the road.
The banner says "Stay Alive Don't Text and Drive."
