Spruce Mountain Middle School Lego team plans bottle drive for Feb. 8


JAY — The Spruce Mountain Middle School Lego League team “Just Keep Swimming” will hold a bottle and coin drive from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 8, in the towns of Jay, Livermore and Livermore Falls.

Team members and their parents will be collecting throughout various neighborhoods. Team members will be wearing their trademark orange clown fish hats.

For drop-off of bottles and cans or a cash donation, a trailer will be staffed at the Jay Town Office across from McDonald’s between 8 a.m. and noon on Saturday.

For more information, contact Rob Taylor at Spruce Mountain Middle School at 897-4319.

The Just Keep Swimming team also will hold a bake sale at Tractor Supply Co. on Route 2/4 in Farmington from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22.

Money raised at both events will fund the team’s trip to Carlsbad, Calif., to compete in the Lego League North American Open Championship where the SMMS all-girls team will be representing the state of Maine.
