Root Beer Junction to Donate Up to $10,000.00 to St Gertrude Boosters

“It’s always good to support local small Madeira businesses, so when you, your family, or friends frequent The Root Beer Junction half of your check will go directly back to St Gertrude Boosters” said Evan and Jennie Cunningham (owners/operators of The Root Beer Junction).

The Root Beer Junction provides delicious Nathan Hot Dogs with more than 100 mouth‐watering topping combinations, award winning chicken and egg salads from Madeira’s own Creations by Melody, delicious soups and chili, not to mention numerous United Dairy Farmer ice cream products and more. Most importantly don’t forget that Root Beer Float you have been craving to top off your meal. It’s a wonderful gathering place for the entire St Gertrude family and now through this reward program a fun and delicious way to support the St Gertrude Booster community.

If we all get behind this fundraiser and support our sponsor, St Gertrude Boosters will directly benefit by receiving a donation up to $10,000.00. Please say “I support St Gertrude’s” or a similar statement each time you frequent The Root Beer Junction. Remember, that is 50% of your total check will be donated directly back to the St Gertrude Boosters.

Message on St Gertrude School from Ralph Martin

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

I don't often conduct parish missions these days so that I can focus on clergy and deacon events. However, I've recently completed three missions, each one special in its own way. I conducted a three-night parish mission at St. Gertrude in Madeira, OH, a suburb of Cincinnati.
