Here's a look at some of Dorchester's news this last day of March:
- Make-A-Wish Auction and Spring Concert Tonight: Tonight (March 31) is the Dorchester Elementary School spring concert -- a favorite of parents and grandparents. During the concert, beginning at 6:30 p.m., the Dorchester Student Council will hold its Make-A-Wish silent auction. Bidding will close 15 minutes after the concert has concluded. Be generous, since all proceed will go to the Nebraska Make-A-Wish program, which enriches the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work.
- Baseball/Softball Fees Due Today: We are told that the deadline for turning in money for Dorchester's youth baseball and softball player fees is today, March 31. Please turn checks or cash into the Dorchester School office. Cost for softball is $40 ($25 for jersey, $15 for league fee). Cost for baseball is $55 ($25 for jersey, $15 for hat, $15 for league fee). Players who have jerseys and hats from last year need to pay only $15 if the jerseys still fit. There will be a brief parents meeting April 16 at 7 p.m. That is when schedules will be distributed and practice plans will be announced.
- Yearbooks On Sale: Dorchester School yearbooks go on sale for $40 beginning tomorrow, April 1, through April 15. After April 15, the price goes up, so order early. An extra $3 will get you your name engraved on the front cover. See the school yearbook staff for more details.
