Thank You to Ms. Penge and Her Generous 4th Grade Class!
It's no secret that we love getting out into the greater community that stretches beyond Grafton, the lovely town our museum calls home. But we're also so fortunate to have a hefty supply of wild enthusiasm for nature just down the road at nearby Grafton Elementary School. Throughout the year, we offer programming to the school at large and to some individual classrooms.
We are excited to announce that we have just received a generous donation from one such class—Amanda Penge's 4th grade classroom. The civic-minded class donated $200 of the funds they raised at the Holiday Bazaar and have opted to give these hard earned funds to The Nature Museum so we can continue our work.
The kids described the motivation behind this sweet gesture: “The Nature Museum does so much for us, we wanted to give back to you.” They pressed for a return trip by our Environmental Educator Jay DeGregorio to their after-school club for more "Nature Club".
We depend on generous donors like this to keep the Museum vital, connected, and growing so it goes without saying that this really meant a lot to us. This kind of support is critical in enabling us to continue to serve our local community.
Thank you Grafton Elementary School 4th Graders!! We love your support and enthusiasm!
