Buttons are being sold at Cub Foods, Terry’s Hardware, Kwik Trip, First State Bank of Rosemount, Walgreen’s, Holiday Station Store on Chippendale Avenue, Super America, Merchants Bank and BP Service Station.
The buttons were designed by Rosemount Middle School student Taylor Brunes in conjunction with the Rosemount Leprechaun Days Committee.
Taylor will be entering eighth grade this fall. She said she has been involved in arts and crafts as long as she can remember.
“It’s a way to relax and stay busy,” she said.
She said she was very excited and surprised to find out she had won the contest, which made her eligible to select from among four prizes with free admission to area attractions.
Taylor said she hopes people think of excitement and fun times when they see the button design. For her, that means the Rosemount Leprechaun Days carnival rides at the Midsummer Faire and the Grand Parade, which she said are her favorite events.
The committee connected with Rosemount Middle School to have students work on the button design project.
Those who purchase a button are eligible for prizes, including gift certificates and other donated items from several area merchants and businesses.
The fundraising project is one of the largest for the seniors. Funds raised go toward programming for activities and future expenses.
