(Dillsboro, Ind.) - Somebody’s going to have to smooch a pig in order to bring technology updates to Dillsboro Elementary School.
A group of school supporters is concerned about outdated computers, projectors, and other educational tools at Dillsboro Elementary. They’ve set up the Dillsboro Elementary Technology Fund to raise money for the need.
As a fundraiser for new equipment, four people are stepping up as candidates in a “Kiss the Pig” contest. They are Dillsboro Elementary Principal Gary Russell, Dillsboro IGA owner and town councilman Rick Fields, Dillsboro Police Chief Ryan Brandt, and Dillsboro Town Manager Scott Fortner.
Donation jars are set up across town. Locations are IGA, J&J Liquor, Friendship State Bank, Dillsboro American Legion, and Janet's Diner.
The candidate whose jar collects the most money will have to smooch the swine before students and staff in the elementary school gym on Friday, December 21 at 2:30 p.m.
