Cloquet High School National Honor Society members proved this week that if you "put your money where your mouth is - you end up with pizza!"

The dedicated group of students held a fund raiser in recent weeks in support of the Gillette Children's Hospital and its Children's Miracle Network.

In all, the NHS students who spearheaded the project and the classes who participated raised some $2,400 - more than any other school in the area.

Because of their impressive effort, members of the NHS group earned a free pizza lunch on Tuesday, compliments of local Children's Miracle Network sponsor Papa John's, and they were special guests at a live, on-site broadcast by disc jockies from KTCO (KAT Country) radio.

"We have a very active and exceptional chapter here in Cloquet," commented NHS advisor Leslie Pettit.

Not content to rest on its laurels, however, the Cloquet NHS group is planning a Senior Bingo Party at the Cloquet Senior Center on Saturday, March 24, from noon to 2 p.m. All senior citizens are welcome, and the event is free of charges. Prizes will be awarded.

The group will also be doing a breakfast fund raiser for Children's Surgery International on Saturday, March 31.
