The Crookston Eagles #873 was excited to give RiverView Health and Altru each a check from the Eagles’ Flip & Flop Cancer Awareness event held last October.

    It was the first year for the new event, and $2,600 was raised for the two Crookston health care providers.

    “We are extremely pleased with that,” said Sheila Menard of the Crookston Eagles Club.

    Mark your calendars for the Eagles’ nexst cancer awareness event, which will be held on Oct. 12.

    “We extend a big thank you to all that helped this to be a great success for our community,” Menard said.

    Those in need will be able to ask RiverView and Altru for assistance in the purchase of wigs, scarves and other things they need that aren’t covered by insurance.
