On April 4, eighth-graders from the Cloquet Middle School were given the opportunity to travel to St. Paul's Park Square Theatre to view Goodrich and Hackett's production of "The Diary of Anne Frank." On behalf of those 180 eighth-graders and the chaperones who accompanied them, we'd like to extend our sincere gratitude to the Cloquet Education Foundation for helping fund our trip. This experience would have been a difficult endeavor without the generosity of this fine organization.

Pope Francis has been offered a $1 million donation to a charity of his choice to go vegan for Lent. A plant-based diet is not just about Christian devotion. Dozens of medical studies have linked consumption of animal products with elevated risk of heart failure, stroke, cancer and other killer diseases.
Because of the overwhelming generosity of our community, we were able to raise over $60,000 for innovative educational opportunities for Cloquet's students
