Big bucks raised for Boehm

LaMoille fifth-grade teacher Mary Boehm, who is on a leave of absence as she recovers from her cancer treatments, was overcome with emotion as the district presented her with more than $30,000 to assist her family with their expenses. Her fellow teachers organized the fundraiser with help from dozens of businesses throughout the Illinois Valley. The event featured 140 silent auction items and 40 live auctions. Donations can still be made for "Bucks for Boehm" at LaMoille's First State Bank.
