November 12, 2015 is Give to the Max day, sponsored by GiveMN.org. Please consider donating to the Foundation for Rushford-Peterson Schools on this day by clicking on the GiveMN.org link, selecting Rushford Community Foundation and writing in Foundation for RP Schools as a sub-category. Last year, the Rushford Community Foundation won a challenge by Harmony Area Foundation and received a gift of new books for our school library.
Thank you to all who participated in our second annual Conquer the Bluff and Tri-City Challenge on October 8 and October 10, 2015. We had beautiful weather for both events.
Thanks also to all those who volunteered at or attended our first annual "Friends of the Foundation Fall Feast" on Friday, October 9. We had a wonderful evening of fine food, fellowship, and music. It was great to continue to spread the word about our Foundation.
Stay tuned for 2016 dates.
Thanks to donor generosity, the Foundation was able to award seven (7) $500 scholarships this year. The Michael Reinhardt recipients were Joey Culhane, Jordan Honken, and Jonathon Koenen. The Michael Reinhardt applicants were asked to write an essay describing how they have challenged themselves during their lives. The Foundation for R-P Schools recipients were Jordan Honken, Jonathan Koenen, Josh Brown, and Connor Johanson. These applicants were asked to write an essay describing ways they would promote the Foundation's mission. Congratulations to all these students.
