Shall We Gather At The “River(side)” For Spaghetti?

I hear Tara Holland is one fantastic cook and she has a crew lined up for Sunday.

They’re making spaghetti – for all of us.

Tara Holland

Tara is the head cook at Riverside Christian School, 610 Second Avenue N.E., East Grand Forks, and she’s making spaghetti to serve at a fund-raiser the school is holding from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday (Jan. 29). Your free-will offering for a delicious spaghetti meal will be used to help purchase a cooler for milk and a warmer for food for Riverside’s kitchen. Thrivent Financial for Lutherans will provide matching funds.

The meal will be served from noon to 2 p.m. There will be music by pre-school and kindergarten students at 12:45 p.m., and festivities will continue until 3 p.m. in the form of an open house. This would be the perfect time for families to check Riverside out if they are thinking of Christian education for their children. Classrooms will be open and teachers and administrators will be on hand to answer any and all questions.

Enrollment at Riverside this year is 144 students according to Jill Hurda assistant to Joe Chine, director of growth and development.

Want to know what kind of people have attended Riverside Christian School in the past? People like Mollie Moen.

Mollie Moen

Here is Mollie’s story from Riverside Connection, the schools’ newsletter:

In November, Mollie a Riverside Christian School alumnus, was named North Dakota Women’s Health Nurse of the Year for 2011.

Mollie, daughter of Glenn and Kathy Moen, attended Riverside Christian School kindergarten through eighth grade. She went on to attend both Red River High School and the University of North Dakota.

Mollie has been working as a labor and delivery nurse for the past six years at Altru Hospital in Grand Forks. Becoming an OB nurse was Mollie’s goal from early on as labor and delivery are her passions.

Mollie’s active involvement in many roles at her work was just one of the reasons she was nominated for this award. Another contributing factor to her selection was her character which she says was influenced by Godly parents and a Christian based beginning to her education.

Hats off to Mollie and bring on the spaghetti!

Until Soon
