Wrapping Paper and Gifts Fundraiser Going on Now!

Get a head start on your holiday shopping with gifts and then wrap them up with beautiful gift wrap from the exciting Camp Orkila fundraiser going on now! 

Syre has partnered a with local company, Northwest Fundraising, to sell gift wrap and other holiday/gift items.  Catalogs were sent home last week and extras are in the office. The Syre Orkila camp fund will get 50% of the gift wrap sales, and 40% of other gift items. We hope this will be a huge boost to the camp funds, as we work to send the 5th and 6th graders to camp in the Spring!
