School Cents Update: Please help Solon earn points
The Solon Community Schools are again taking part in a program sponsored by Lindale Mall, WMT-FM Mix 96.5 and the Gazette.
Lindale Mall is offering $25,000 to area high schools related to their participation in the program. Customers vote for their favorite participating high school by turning in mall receipts to receive points for their schools.
Solon Community High School will receive 10 points for every Solon dollar spent at Lindale Mall (receipts turned in) and 100 points for every Solon dollar spent at the food merchants in the mall (receipts turned in).
Triple Point Weekends will be Nov. 25-27, and Dec. 16-18.
Redemption boxes for receipts are located at the Lindale Mall center court by fountain and at the Collins Road Hy-Vee. Note that if using Hy-Vee for redemption, please write “Solon” on the back of the receipt.
