Trick or Treat for Canned Goods
  • On Halloween, two Butler R-5 student organizations participated in the 13th annual trick or treat for canned goods.  Future Business Leaders of America and Family, Career and Community Leaders of America collected food items for the local Food Pantry.  Over 300 items were collected and donated this year.  A big thank you to all students involved in this project and the community for supporting this community service event.  Event sponsors were Angie Kauffman and Robin Colburn.
