Witch Way Update
It looks like the Wicked Witch of the West is playing a cruel trick on us with the weather for the Lurgio Witch Way Fun Run on Saturday, October 27th. Instead of a tornado, we are getting a Nor'easter. In keeping with our theme of more FUN, we have decided to move our fundraiser indoors, which means we have been able to add more games and activities for the whole family to enjoy.

While we won’t be able to trick or trot down County Road, we will be taking our bibbed participants through the school to visit our Halloween-themed pit stops on a journey that culminates in the gymnasium and dining hall with the fun activities of our Witch Way Family Fun Fest. In addition to the costume contest and raffles prizes, we will also have Halloween-themed crafts, inflatable bounce houses, face painting, pumpkin decorating, and so much more!

Schedule of Events:

9:30-10:30    Registration and bib/t-shirt pickup (Media Center)
9:30-11:00    Halloween-themed Pit Stops Open (Lurgio Hallways)
9:30-12:00    Food, Crafts, Activities and Games  (Dining Hall and Gym)
10:45        Raffle winners drawn - winners posted and prize pickup (Lurgio Gym)
11:00        Costume Contest winners announced (Lurgio Gym)
11:00-12:00    Food, Crafts, Activities and Games in (Dining Hall and Gym)

We want to thank all our sponsors, participants, and volunteers for their flexibility as we adjust for the unpredictable weather this weekend. We look forward to a great community turnout tomorrow for our annual fundraiser!

BEF Parking Spot Auction!

The BEF has two prime parking spots just outside the theatre at the high school.  We are opening up an online auction for one of the parking spots. The auction will be live until 6 PM on October 20th.


We will auction off our second parking spot at our upcoming Annual Fall Fundraiser.  We hope many of you will come to our event!
