The Spring Grove basketball boys are selling and delivering water softener salt - Morton's System Saver II Pellets with time-release action in 40-pound bags as a fund-raiser. It works with all brands and models of water softeners.

Some of your favorite seventh through 12th grade Lion lads will deliver the salt to your location and will even dump the heavy bags into your softener if you wish. Deliveries are scheduled for Sunday afternoons throughout the month of July.

The boys have been going door to door in Spring Grove on Sundays taking orders and leaving printed ordering instructions. If residents have not yet ordered, they may do so in several ways:

1) go to school website: www.springgrove.k12.mn.us and click on the SG boys basketball salt sales link on the left hand side. Then fill out the form and click "submit."

2) Send the boys an email at sglionsalt@gmail.com with your name, phone number, number of bags, delivery address and where you wish bags to be placed if you are not home.

3) Fill out the order form on the back side of the flyer left at your house and mail it with your check to: Chris Strinmoen, 15773 County 17, Spring Grove, MN 55974

4) Call 498-SALT and leave a voicemail message with your name, address and time when the salt can be delivered.

The boys look at this project as a way not only to raise funds but also to supply a product that residents need plus providing a service that many will greatly appreciate.

Below are the purchase options, and remember deliver doesn't cost any extra:

• 1-on-1 package - single bags of salt for $7.50;

• Half-court package - 7 bags of salt for $50 ($7.14 per bag); or

• Full-court package - 15 bags of salt for $100 ($6.67 per bag).
