Treats for Troops Results
Last week we concluded our 4th Annual Treats for Troops, a Snodgrass King candy buy back program. We are so excited to tell you it was HUGE success! We had around 300 kids per night come in to our office to drop off candy. Then of course stay to play, eat pizza and popcorn, see raffle-drawing winners, and find out which school won first place and who got runner up!
The Wilson County schools that participated this year were West Elementary, Elzie Patton Elementary, Stoner Creek Elementary, Mt. Juliet Elementary, Rutland Elementary, Lakeview Elementary, W.A. Wright Elementary, and Gladeville Elementary.
The Spring Hill schools that were added this year were Longview Elementary, Spring Hill Elementary, and Marvin Wright Elementary.
