The Sideline – December 16

Mt. Vernon wrestlers conducting fundraiser

The Mt. Vernon Middle School wrestling team is conducting a soap fundraiser, selling laundry detergent liquid and pods, and dish soap and pods. For each bucket of soap sold, the team will make $10.

The next order is due at the end of the month, but the team also will be placing orders all year so anytime anyone wants a refill or to place a new order, the opportunity will be available.

Visit maraudersathletics.com to find order forms and for more information.
