Emily Henson, 9, of Morrison, races another swimmer to the other end of the pool while carrying her turkey in a spoon during the Turkey Toss fundraiser Sunday at Morrison High School. The goal of the fundraiser was to raise money to help keep the Morrison High School pool open to the public. The Morrison High School Lady Fillies swim team organized the event. Plastic turkeys were tossed into the pool for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate from Sullivan’s Foods in Morrison. Sofia Scott, 10, of Morrison, was the winner.
