Fencing Tournament Fundraiser


Announcing a Fencing Tournament Fundraiser March 31, 2018 TANDEM FRIENDS SCHOOL GYM 9:00 am

Coach Harriet Caplin, along with others in the Tandem Friends School junior class, recently made the annual trip to South Dakota and stayed on a reservation to study with the Native Lakota people. Her community service group at Tandem Friends chose to help fundraise for scholarships at the Oglala Lakota Community College. Opportunities for higher education are very rare on the reservation and the scholarships provide much needed assistance.

A fencing tournament is a great way to raise money as well as give fencers the opportunity to compete with friends and gain experience. Participating students are encouraged to collect pledges for touches made as well as accepting outright donations for the cause. Pledge sheets will be available several weeks before the event so that the fencers have sufficient time to collect pledges.

All proceeds from the tournament will go directly to the Oglala Lakota College Fund.This a wonderful cause which Coach Caplin is very passionate about.

To learn more Oglala Lakota Community College, here is a link to their website: Oglala Lakota College
