Pre School Climbs to the top with Willie Nelson

This is another poster/thank you card made by the students of the Peru, Illinois Catholic School, and presented to Willie following the concert Willie Nelson and Family did to benefit the school on 9/22/07.  The concert was part of “Concerts that Care” series sponsored by the Lou’s La Grotto restaurant in Peru. 

Area schools submitted letters stating why they would like to benefit from the concert proceeds, and the letter written by a student at the Peru Catholic school was selected.  The school plans to use the funds to build a playground on the school yard.

At the concert, Willie was presented with two bags of thank you cards and concert posters that the children had made.  There is a slide show up at the top, on the side, if you want to see more.
