To the News Enterprise:
Johnsburg Dollars for Scholars would like to thank the following for supporting our Spaghetti Dinner Fund Raiser last week: Laurie and the folks at Marsha’s Restaurant for volunteering their time and resources, Jacob & Toney for donating meat, Rockhill Bakehouse for their donation of Italian rolls, and Price Chopper.
Many thanks to the community members who came to enjoy the meal and support the Books for Young Scholars Program. A total of $479 was raised to support the program for the 2011-12 year. Last year books were provided for JCS students in grades PK-6th grade as well as funds for literacy programs at JCS and the Headstart program. Additionally, college tuition scholarships totaling $10,180 were awarded to 10 members of the JCS Class of 2011 at graduation in June. Community support is vital to continued success in our efforts to serve the children of Johnsburg.
Our largest fund raiser, Race the Train, was not able to take place this year due to the change in the railroad provider. We are planning the return of Race the Train next summer in partnership with Iowa Pacific Railroad.
