Siesta is the Friday of Mission Week. A time when Mercy girls donate money to the mission of that year. This year the money goes to supporting tea workers in other countries. This day is when Mercy girls can donate by buying raffles tickets, dodgeball games, food, or carnival games.
This year there were so many good raffles, from Raising Cane's basket to a Humble Lily gift card. The Humble Lily was won by Mrs. Wessling. A Creighton t-shirt was won by Hannah Harbul and Claire Witchita. A Scooters gift card was won by Meredith Engel. These are only some of the raffles, as there were at least 20-25 raffles to compete for!
The ring toss carnival game went over the best. To play you had to pay a dollar for three rings. This was held in the Cafeteria and gym. The girls were really raking in the liters of pop on this one!
