UPDATE: Rick's apparently on the roof

But still no Facebook pictures?!

What the heck is everyone doing in Waxhaw today? Make yourselves useful.

On a serious note, I've already touched upon Rick Giarla's efforts this weekend and urge you to contribute if you can spare a dime or preferably more. He's set a hefty goal, so it be nice to reach it or at least come as close to it as we can. Hopefully the entirety of the county chips in on this fundraiser as it benefits students from across the county, not just those from Waxhaw.

Here's the page to do it.

The Union County Weekly wrote up an article on this fundraiser, providing some specifics about how the money will be spent. A snippet:
Giarla will be on top of Stacks from 8 a.m. Friday to 8 a.m. Monday, while volunteers work down below, collecting donations. He hopes to raise $30,000 for the school. That would allow South Providence to buy eight Smart Boards for the classrooms at $3,400 each and two dozen TI 83 calculators at $85 each.
Read the whole thing.

UPDATE 8.58p: It appears that Jim Black is on the case and has some pictures up now on Facebook.
