(Meeteetse, Wyo.) - Many community members have asked how they can help the Horsen Family at this time. Reboot spoke with Superintendent Jay Curtis this morning and, although some efforts are still in the works, there are four ways you can help. All money raised will go toward Leo and the Horsen Family. 1. *Bank of the West* - Fund is under 'Horsen Family.' Bank of the West's phone number is 307-868-2521. 2. *Meeteetsee School Spring Concert Thursday, May 5th* -Longhorn League Parent/Teacher organization will have Concession Stands open all evening long. All proceeds will go towards the Horsen Family. 3. *Annual Sports Banquet* - There will be some sort of fundraiser at this event, but details are unclear at this time. 4. *Summertime Community Event* - There will be a potential BBQ and/or support auction this summer; however a date and details have yet to be determined. *Timeline of what we know so far about Leo's accident: * *Monday, May 2:* Middle School student Leo Horsen was shagging shot puts at the High School track meet when he was accidentally struck in the head with a shot put.
