Misssion accomplished!

Ely sixth-grader Robert Towley is making a special delivery this week - and taking a special trip.
The 11-year-old will miss a few days of school, but he’ll be completing a mission he began in late-2017, and journeying to Memphis, Tenn. - home of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Robert will be presenting hospital officials Thursday with a check for just over $4,000, the result of a fundraising drive that included a chili feed he hosted last month at the First Lutheran Church.
Declaring that “no kid should ever have cancer,” Robert sought to raise money for St. Jude’s, a pediatric treatment and research facility focused on children’s catastrophic diseases.
With the help of family members and friends, he organized the Dec. 1 chili feed, shaking the hands of most if not all of the roughly 200 people that were served.
Others also donated to Robert’s cause, resulting in a contribution that topped $4,000.
