Some browsed the Silent Auction items to keep up on the bidding.
Students from any local area schools as well as those who are homeschooled may participate in the educational 2021 EF World Tour to Australia and New Zealand. Currently eight students from the Licking area are planning on taking the trip. They are, in addition to the evening servers: Shannity Robertson; Isaac Robertson; Kaitlyn Wade and Cy Robertson.
Participating students will be eligible to receive High School or College credit for completion of a project. The project must be an all encompassing, in-depth, ten-minute movie about the country being visited; this includes information on the area visited, the economics, people, culture, plant and animals which are indigenous to that area.
“Each student must raise the money for their trip, done in large part by ongoing fundraisers with the group. The goal is to teach communication and work skills, further enabling them to become self-sufficient individuals,” said Georgia Merrick, Group Leader.
According to Merrick, “The evening was a great success in contributing toward their financial goal.”
Upcoming World Travel Club fundraisers include:
Saturday, Oct. 5, they will be selling funnel cakes at G-Ma Pam’s Walk for Life event.
Monday, Oct. 14, at the Houston Pizza Hut from 5 – 9 p.m., 20 percent of the profits made from diners with a WTC flyer will be contributed towards the World Tour.
Monday, Nov. 11, at the Houston Taco Bell from 5 – 9 p.m., a percentage again will benefit the World Tour.
From Oct. 15 through Nov. 15, Rada Cutlery will be donating 50 percent of student sales to the World Tour.
A Gun Raffle is ongoing, selling 100 chances to win a Ruger American .308 gun. Tickets are $10 and you can contact any participating student or Georgia Merrick at 417-217-9218 for tickets.
