St. Michael Library Receives Grant for Children's Furniture
The St. Michael Public Library has received a Wright-Hennepin Electrical Trust Grant of $1,720. It is to be used toward the purchase of two children’s tables and four chairs for the new St. Michael Public Library which has a planned opening date of Friday, Dec. 3.
Branch Manager Marla Scherber completed the grant application. She went to the Wright-Hennepin Cooperative Electric Association (WH) offices in Rockford on Nov. 4 to receive the grant. WH donates more than $100,000 annually to civic organizations and worthy causes in its area through its Operation Round Up (ORU) program. ORU makes it easy for individuals to round up their utility bill to the nearest dollar, with the additional contribution being returned to the community in the form of grants, charitable donations and scholarships. Marla is photographed with John Meister, ORU Board Chair.
