A 16-year-old sophomore at Alton High School is inviting you to the mouse races this Saturday night at the Alton VFW. Kelsey Kutter has been selected to become a People to People Student Ambassador to Europe, joining a delegation of students her age on a 19-day trip through Ireland, England, Wales and France.
She says fundraising wraps up near the end of June, with a departure date of July 4.

The entire cost of the trip will run about $7,000, so she is doing a number of fundraisers. The cost to get in Saturday night is $20, and the first race is at 7pm. There will be a 50/50 raffle, silent auction, and mouse roulette. For more information, call 570-9763.
