Five contestants (Drew Hill, Stacey Sawyer, Dean Reida, Suzanne Meier, and Jason Gibson) competed in a musical chair event Friday, Feb. 1, during half-time of the GHS Boys Basketball Game. Sawyer won the battle and received a $100 gift certificate donated by Keith Foods. Other participants received a donated Lincoln Perk mug and gift certificate. This event was sponsored by Goessel Community Foundation (GCF), an affiliate of Central Kansas Community Foundation.

The mission of the GCF is to enhance the quality of educational, cultural, civic and economic life in Goessel both today and in the future.
