At the beginning of March Boys & Girls Club of Fort Atkinson ended a coin drive to raise money for the Fort Police Department to train a new K9 officer named Dino (pronounced Dee-no).
We set an organizational wide goal of raising $500 dollars and ended up collecting $750! Because we went far beyond our goal this Friday, April 8th we will be celebrating at each school with a pizza party!
The school that raised the most money was Purdy Elementary. They now get to meet Dino this Thursday before he goes off for a 6-week training session with his human officer Ben Boeve.
Thank you to all who helped contribute to Dino. We can't wait to meet him and help send him off for training.
