Griggsville- Perry Middle School student, Chambra Kelley receiving an iPod from Rotarian Murray Martin. The iPod was the prize awarded to a randomly drawn student who attended the recent Anti Drinking and Drugs Program sponsored by the Pittsfield Rotary Club and Illini Community Health Care Foundation. Each attendee received a numbered sack and was required to keep their sack for a week as well as have a parent sign it. Chambra met all of the requirements to win the iPOD and was most anxious to use it.  posted 5-11-07
