I am currently in my second year of being a member of the Heart Club, although last year it was called the Health and Wellness Club. Although the name has shortened, our determination to broaden and strengthen the club has not! It had just started last year, which is when I joined and I already think the members and club itself is doing so much better. On December 21, our last day of school before Christmas Break, the school is playing a Christmas movie in the auditorium for the students to watch after everyone has eaten lunch. This year, our club has decided to create an alternative choice for the students who do not want to watch the movie. To help raise money for our leading cause, the American Heart Association, we are asking students to participate in either a Spike-ball or cornhole tournament in the gymnasium while the movie is playing. Each game requires a team, but it costs $5 per person to play. Even if the students do not want to play, they can watch their peers compete for just a dollar. The tournament is only open to grades 9-12 due to space and resources, but junior high students are welcome to come watch to see if it is something they would be interested in for their upcoming years. I think this project will do really well, especially for it’s first year. I genuinely hope the students here at East Juniata consider this option and enjoy it if they choose to partake. The members of the Heart Club have been, and continue to work very hard on creating a system for this project, spreading the word, planning, and providing everything they can to help the club advisors. I cannot wait to see the outcome of this project!
