Cheers and jeers

CHEERS - To Wheelerville school. Wheelerville students and members of the Caroga community decided to step up and support a good cause: Angel Flight. School Superintendent Richard Ruberti said students collected money by setting up coin buckets in local stores and seeking donations from fellow students, school faculty and local organizations. After a six-month effort, the students raised $2,700. Students and other school representatives presented the donation to Angel Flight at an assembly last week. Angel Flight is a nonprofit organization of pilots and volunteers who arrange free air transportation for people who have medical needs. The organization has a tender connection with the area. Sadly, an Angel Flight that was headed from Massachusetts to Rome, N.Y., crashed in May 2013 in Ephratah, claiming the three people in the plane - the pilot, the patient and the patient's wife. The students at Wheelerville showed great generosity and respect in their fundraising efforts.
