Student anouncement: My name is Austin Coale, I am in the 10th grade here at Cannon School, and I am collecting goods for the Humane Society this year. I have recently volunteered there, and I realized that they needed some goods badly, after talking with someone who works there; I decided to collect goods at school. I will be collecting puppy and kitten food, and also paper towels. My project is different because instead of collecting goods in the Upper School exclusively, I will be collecting canned goods at 2 home varsity basketball games. The dates for these games are the 19th and 22nd of November. There will be labeled bins near the entrance to the game where people can place their donations. If anyone has questions, he or she can e-mail me at acoale@cannonschool.org. These goods will be going to help all of the animals at the Humane Society of Concord.

Cans  from Cannon were taken Wednesday to the Food Bank. Thank you for all of your support.
