New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 21, 2005, New Braunfels, Texas GOOOFORYOU Photo submitted Memorial Elementary students raised $1,445 during "Pennies for Patients." Pictured are, from left, front row, Emma Woodall and Casey Cowev, back row, Monica Medina and Shea Garinger. Memorial Elementary students raise money for ‘Pennies for Patients’ Memorial Elementary students raised $1,445 during “Pennies for Patients,” a fund-raiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma vSociety. Shea Garinger's Memorial Elementary third grade class raised the most money — $193.50 between Feb. 28 and March 18. While Communities in Schools representative Monica Medina was impressed with the students’ efforts, she was blown away by what they did next. “As an incentive for raising money, the society gives the class with the highest amount $50 to have a party. When we told Ms. Garinger’s class they could do what-* ever they wanted with the money, the said they wanted to give it back to the society,” she said. Medina was not the only one surprised by the students’ decision. “When I called to tell the people at LLS, they were floored. They said they had never had this happen before," she said, laughing. “I’m just so impressed with our students.” The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families. — Leigh Jones Birthdays/Anniversaries HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO: ■ Eldred Schneider ■ Dorothy Seidel ■ Mark Johnson ■ Justin Schmidt ■ Lottie Kronkosky How to get your news into the Herald-Zeuung Residents are encouraged to share their accomplishments, special moments and community events.
