On January17, 2014, St.Paul Central High School’s environmental club, Roots and Shoots, hosted its 2nd annual Dodgeball Fundraiser at the nearby Jimmy Lee Recreation Center. Why a Dodgeball Tournament? It was a fun way for the Central community to get involved and support Roots and Shoots’ effort to raise enough money to install two hydration stations. 

It has been a great first semester for YEA! MN this year. I met most of the students for the first time at our Steering Committee kick-off meeting in August. It was two days after I started and I had little idea what to expect. 15 students and myself had pizza in one of the co-chairs attic bedrooms, and while the temperatures are frigid now, it was a sticky, hot, and humid first meeting. Noneless, I was inspired by their plans for the semester and ability to work as a team. From that first meeting on I have not been let down.
