The Montezuma school’s auditorium (formerly the south gym) has undergone an extensive renovation in recent months, and the Montezuma Lions Club has made a major donation to put “frosting on the cake.” At a cost of $4,840, the Lions have paid for 220 deluxe, fabric-covered padded folding chairs for the auditorium floor level seating. The school district has purchased seven dollies for storage of the new chairs.
School Superintendent Dave Hoeger stated, “The Montezuma School District is very grateful for the Lions’ donation of these padded chairs to be used in our newly renovated auditorium. The chairs will provide our guests with a much more comfortable chair when they come to support our students in their plays and concerts. We are very happy to recognize this donation with a sticker on each chair thanking the Lions for their donation.”
Hoeger added, “I am very happy that the Lions and the school district support each other in our efforts to help the Montezuma community. The school district will continue to work with the Lions and other organizations in the city to be as effective and supportive as possible for our citizens.”
The Lions’ fundraising activities made the chairs donation possible. The most recent example is the pancake breakfast held Oct. 26 that was attended by more than 380 people. A part of that event was a drawing for a deluxe shotgun and for a gun scope. Drawing chairman Larry Weeks reported the winner of the shotgun was a hunter from Indiana who hunts on the Roger Iverson farm. The scope was won by Doug Boyd of New Sharon.
