CDC Contributes $22K To Lansing Schools


computerwoman1The Corporate Development Committee(CDC) of Lansing presented a $22,000 donation to the Lansing Central School District (LCSD) at last week’s Board Of Education meeting. The donation was made possible by the proceeds from the annual CDC fundraiser. The most recent fundraiser included a fun 80’s dance party, silent auction and corporate donations. The sole purpose of the CDC and it’s donations to the LCSD, are to support and further the educational opportunities of Lansing students by providing equipment and technology to the school district.

“We are thrilled with the growing partnership between the CDC and the LCSD,” said CDC President and Lansing parent, Stephanie Perine. “We continue to look into the future for additional opportunities to make contributions that can benefit all Lansing students.”

“The Lansing Central School District community is truly grateful for all of the organizers and volunteers who each year create a wonderful community event with the purpose of fundraising to increase student engagement and use of technology in our schools,” said Chris Pettograsso, Superintendent of Lansing Schools. “All members of the Lansing school community benefit greatly from the improved infrastructure support that will allow us greater accessibility and use of the technology we currently have. On behalf of the Lansing Central School District administration, faculty, staff and students, thank you!”

The CDC has already begun planning for its 2015 annual fundraiser. You can “Save the Date” for this event on April 25, 2015. The group is also starting a local corporate giving campaign for the fall of 2014. The proceeds from these efforts will be made available for future contributions based on the needs of the LCSD and committee approval.

Pet of the Week

by Sarah Post

Mia Good Day to you, dear visitor. My name is Mia and, to put it bluntly, I've had a pretty rough time of it this year. My people said I am the nicest and most intelligent cat there is, 'a bundle of love' after I get to know you. Talking in a high-pitched voice seems to help. At the moment, however, I'm recovering from a pretty bad and very uncomfortable skin condition which had the vets mystified at first. Part of it appears to be a burn, which is greatly improved - yay! I'm wearing my Thundershirt to keep me from scratching or otherwise irritating the sore spots; that will probably be needed for a while longer, even though I'm feeling MUCH better! The great SPCA folks think I will be MUCH more friendly and anxious to be loved and stroked when I'm totally cured. Have you got the patience to help me heal and become cuddly and loving once more? I'm looking forward to being my old self again.
