The Delta Record | The RCES hosts an annual fundraising dance
ROCK CAVE — For the past few years, Rock Cave Elementary School has held an annual paper butterfly sale and school dance to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association. The school’s Kindness Club (KC Club), under the direction of school counselor Larry Lance, has partnered with Alpha Delta Kappa (an honorary organization of teachers) to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Association. All the money goes towards raising awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and funding the search for a cure. Jill Stemple, president of W. Va. Alpha Delta Kappa’s Longest Day, teaches at Rock Cave Elementary. When his father passed away in 2006, butterflies from his class were released into the air at the time of his funeral, which gave rise to the idea of selling paper butterflies.
The longest day June 21, the sunniest day, was chosen as the day of the fight to find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. On the Longest Day, people from all over will take part in activities to remember people living with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers. Mr. Lance’s KC Club and students and staff raised $1,143.00 for the Alzheimer’s Association. A special thank you to Lance, Rock Cave Elementary School staff, families, students, volunteers and the Rock Cave community for making this event so special!
