Second graders to visit state fair thanks to a grant from the WRCCF

The Wood River Elementary second graders were presented with a check from the Wood River Community Centennial Foundation for their visit to the Nebraska State Fair next week. They will have the opportunity to participate in the Nebraska’s Largest Classroom program at the fair. Students will be able to learn about different animals and agriculture in the state of Nebraska. Funds for this grant were from the Alice Dubbs Named Fund. Mrs. Dubbs was a longtime second grade teacher at Wood River Elementary.

The family designated her named fund to be used by the second grade class. Jeanette Dean represented her mother along with Jenny Reeder, Heather Zessin, Kaye Doane, Peg Krause and Judy Wagoner from the Foundation in making this presentation.

This is the third class to benefit from the Alice Dubbs Named Fund. A named fund can be established with a beginning balance of $500.00 with the donor having the option to designate the use. For further information contact a board member or at wrfoundation@msn. com or P.O. Box 493, Wood River.
