New Sarepta school group raises thousands at jugspiel

The milk may be gone but when the empty jugs can bring you thousands of dollars there is definitely no reason to cry.

The milk may be gone but when the empty jugs can bring you thousands of dollars there is definitely no reason to cry.

The New Sarepta Agricultural Society held its 15 annual jugspiel on March 26 and, as it has done in the past, the New Sarepta Elementary School got involved by contributing the silent auction portion of the event.

The school has a parent-run volunteer group called Partners Involved In Education (P.I.I.E.) and the just-for-fun, community jugspiel serves as one of the group’s major fundraisers for the year.

“We did very well, there was a very good turnout,” said Crystal Murch, P.I.I.E. chair.

“We raised $2,700,” she added.

The money is added to a pooled used to fund students’ extra-curricular activities and other events. “It helps pay for the kids to go skiing and swimming and field trips,” said Murch.

In the past the school has also hosted artists and bullying awareness presentations with money raised by P.I.I.E.

Jugspiel results:

Winner finals winner: team Whatever Works Chris Knight, Jim Helsby, Tim Kennedy and Trevor Harmider

Loser finals winner: team VIP Squad Kathy Kramer, Rick Kramer, Leeanne Meunier and Vic Swiredowski

Best team name: I Swept With Your Wife
