Fundraiser great for Explorers
MEXICO -- A recent successful fundraiser has left the Explorer Post 364 in terrific financial shape.
Cameron Barrieau, an advisor with the Explorers, said they are as fiscally sound as they have ever been since becoming a post four years ago.
That's due to their 40 percent take on the Night of Laughs event held on March 4 in the Muskie Auditorium at Mountain Valley High School. More than 800 people attended the comedic event.
Mexico Police Sgt. Roy Hodsdon said the event raised more than $5,000 for the Explorers, which will now be able to provide enough uniforms to outfit all 12 current members, as well as send a couple of them to the Explorer police academy this summer.
