Principal shares ‘special’ kiss
Puckering up to plant a peck purposefully on a pudgy pig may not have been what Spring Grove Principal Nancy Gulbranson had envisioned doing Tuesday night during the choir concert, but she was the “winner” of the Kiss A Pig contest sponsored by the Spring Grove Music Boosters. Ten teachers’ photos and names were placed on jars at various businesses in Spring Grove. People could “vote” for their favorite person to kiss a pig by placing money in the jars. The “winner” was the one with the most money. Gulbranson “won” with a vote of $163.06. Guidance counselor Scott Solberg placed second and art teacher Renee Eiken placed third. Overall, $725 was raised. The money raised from this contest goes into an account for the chaperones that will be going with the band and choir students on their trip to Disney World in June. Unsure of its moment in the spotlight, the friendly pig held still for its kiss from Gulbranson. Music Booster Board Member Cheryl Patterson is shown holding the pig, which is owned by Dan Alstad.
