CORINNA – The first ever Lego Convention aimed to help raise funds for the RSU 19 school district which has faced large amounts of school budget debt in recent years.
The event was donation only and included raffles, Lego race track, coloring stations and probably one of the most painful experiences in the world, The “Lego Fire Walk” where children step on a bed of Lego’s.
“This is the first time we’ve ever done something like this, and we put it together in about 3 weeks not a single meeting in person it was all done on Facebook.” said convention coordinator John Szovowsky.
He also added, “More importantly I really wanted to show our teachers and our staff here at Corinna Elementary how much we love them and how much they do for our children.”
All funds from the event will be split to get more school supplies for children in the area.
