Thank You

There was a wonderful announcement at the Walk with G.R.A.C.E. kickoff meeting last week. Keith Behling from the Richland Rotary presented information on a donation made to G.R.A.C.E. by rotary. Each night individual groups help at the park to keep things running smoothly. The rotary gives each organization $50 for every night worked. In turn, the groups choose the organization they want those funds to benefit. The donation to G.R.A.C.E. from those who worked at the park, as well as from the Rotary, totaled $600!

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone involved!

This year the organizations that gave to G.R.A.C.E. were:

Rockwell Automation $150.00

Richland County Bank $ 50.00

Lincoln School $ 50.00

Richland Electric Co-op Genuine Telecom $ 50.00

All American Do It Center $ 50.00

Dairyland Transportation $ 50.00

Richland Hospital Lab $ 50.00

Misfit Dolls $150.00
