Solar Eclipse Event

posted Aug 23, 2017, 5:35 PM by James Nennemann   [ updated Aug 23, 2017, 5:42 PM ]

We had a great time today at our Solar Eclipse event. Sidney Community School provided a bus that transported many to the site. We even had a few on our bus from Northern Minnesota! We made a little bit of money by selling some snacks and even received donations for the portable toilet we provided (FCHS paid for one and Don's Johns donated one). With everyone's help, FCHS was able to provide this service to the public to experience a once in a lifetime event!
