[May 10, 2017]
- The West Lincoln Broadwell Student Council traveled to Springfield
on Friday, April 28 to volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House. The
10 students made lunch for the families that are staying at the
Ronald McDonald House while their child is a patient at St John’s
The 5th – 8th graders planned the menu at their
Student Council meeting in March and decided which ingredients they
would bring to prepare the lunch. The menu was tacos and taco salad
with all of the fixings and brownies. The students under the
supervision of Mrs. Miller, Student Council advisor as well as Mrs.
Keller cooked the taco meat, diced the onions & tomatoes, baked the
brownies & served the lunch buffet style. “This gave the students a
great opportunity to volunteer for a place that has helped so many
in Logan County and did an amazing job cooking the meal” said Shelly
Miller, WLB Student Council Advisor.
The Student Council
also involved the West Lincoln Broadwell School family by collecting
donations for the Ronald McDonald House Wish List and the Happy
Wheels Hospitality Cart. The students also brought 79 pounds of pop
tabs to donate.

After the students prepared lunch, a volunteer gave a tour of the
Ronald McDonald House. The house opened in February 1986 and today has 14
private bedrooms as well as a large living and dining common area to be a “home
away from home” for their guests.
