Group devoted to serving Trinity Lutheran School ready to make it a community effort
Tuesday, December 20, 2011
Freshly painted tiger pawprints greeted students to a new school year at Trinity Lutheran School, thanks to a group of helping dads.
The Trinity Dads group has been painting, promoting and fundraising for four years now.
None of the dads knew each other prior to the initial fundraiser — Tigerfest Fun Fair. The auction and carnival was taking its toll on the parent volunteers, said Paul Beck.
So the dads, who are mostly professionals and have a broad network within the community, found they had something to offer, said Tony Shanley. And they invited the greater community to support the major event.
“We’re like ambassadors to the community,” Shanley said. “We go back and tell the school’s story.”
