North Branch Area High School recently received 100 new robes from Regency Cap and Gown. The robes were made possible through grants from the East Central Energy Round-up, the Shopko Foundation, and Lake State Federal Credit Union.

The grant funds raised $3,500, and the North Branch Booster Club provided the additional $2,860 for the new gowns.

“The NB Music Booster Club is pleased to outfit the choir with new robes so choir students can proudly represent the North Branch School District at their home concerts and at choir activities at other venues,” said Tracy Kristo of the booster club. “We also gratefully acknowledge the corporate sponsors who joined us in this goal and all the local community members who participated in our fundraising events.”
