On November 21, 2009, Lincoln Middle School’s PTSO,
students and parents will conduct the fundraising activity of the year. The Cow Drop!
The back lot of ECHS will be the site of what promises to become the entertainment event of the year with a goal of
helping to promote and finance educational activities for students at Lincoln Middle School.
THE SCHOOL COULD EARN $20,000 TO SUPPORT STUDENTS INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF THE CLASSROOM.
A lucky winner could earn $2500!*
The athletic field will be divided into equal squares and each of those squares will be sold for $5.00. On the morning of the 21st a drawing will determine the location of each ticket’s square. At 9 am, Bessie the Cow will enter the stadium grounds. Free to roam the area, we will await anxiously for Bessie to drop her paddy.
The owner of the square in which Bessie first does her duty will receive a check for $2,500 (or 10% of total ticket sales) for their support of Lincoln Middle School PTSO. The second dropping will receive a check for $1,750 and the 3rd, $750.00 (7% and 3% respectively).
Support this worthy effort to broaden the horizons of our students. Contribute to the fundraising efforts of your community and experience the satisfaction of helping our young people. Who Knows! Your reward may be much more!!
*Reward checks are based on sales of 5000 squares. Payments represent 20% of total sales. In the event sales do not reach 5000 squares, payments will be adjusted accordingly. For more information on how you can help the Lincoln Middle School PTSO, contact Patrick Cornforth @ 760.917.1258.

Thanks to all the artists, volunteers, and patrons who attended the 2009 Friends of FireMountain Art Show and Sale this past weekend.
With some amazing art, jewelry, scarves, and other crafty items on hand, the dollars raised for the Spay and Neuter Action Program (SNAP) totalled over $500.
SNAP is San Diego’s Spay/Neuter Action Project, providing low cost spay/neuter clinics and animal welfare education to the underserved multicultural, low-income communities of the county. (We are at Joe Balderama Park in Eastside, Oceanside, twice a month.) SNAP’s goal is to reduce the number of homeless animals who end up in shelters.
If you missed your chance to help out, the Greener Christmas Store will be on site at the Seaside Bazaar in Encinitas on November 21st. The Greener Christmas Store is the brainchild of local artist Kris Nelson and utilizes recycled materials to create holiday ornaments, decorations, and some wonderful holiday gifts- and all of the proceeds benefit SNAP.
