December Update & January Preview
Welcome to our Viking family! Thank you for supporting us on our community service voyage.
December was a busy month for WMS Builders Club. We had so much fun providing support for so many different events this month. Read on to find out about the many different opportunities have had over the month of December.
Thank you to those who have sponsored or donated to events that we have hosted or participated in so far. We could not do all of these wonderful projects without you!
American Legion Commanders Luncheon
On December 4th, Builders Club took members of the Veterans Group and Officers to serve a meal to the Commanders of the American Legion. Students served drinks, a meal and dessert. They also helped with bussing tables. We really enjoyed spending time with the families of our veterans.
Salvation Army Bell Ringing
On December 11th, WMS Builders Club rang the bells to help raise money for the Salvation Army.
Operation Blue Santa
Thanks to this year's sponsors and volunteers, the Winfield Police Department was able to brighten the holiday season for 14 families.

William Newton Memorial Hospital Care Packages
Each care package had handmade cards from the students at WMS. They also included Hershey's Hugs & Kisses and LifeSavers Candy Canes. We love our life-savers at our local hospital!
Wreaths Across America
Thanks to all of the generosity of our community members, organizations and businesses we were able to raise enough money to provide 84 wreaths for this wonderful cause!
