Football Players Donate Area Veteran Memorials

Tackles for Vets is a community service project that volunteers from the 2016 Ashby Youth Football and West Central Area/Ashby Jr. High programs participated in. The concept for the young gridmen was to approach their communities, gather pledges or donations based on tackles made on the field and following the season collect and donate the proceeds to a community need. In this case the Ashby Youth Program donated all money raised to the Ashby Veterans Memorial and the joint WCAA Jr. High evenly split their kitty amongst the Veteran Memorials that serve their school districts…Ashby, Elbow Lake and Kensington.
