Letter to the Editor

July 20, 2006

To the editor:

The Baldwin Education Foundation wants to extend our many thanks to the

Baldwin City Chamber of Commerce and its Promotions Committee for hosting

the Meet and Greet fundraiser. With their support the event raised more than $2,500. Many thanks go to the Baldwin City Lion's Club for presenting an extremely generous surprise $1,000 check to the Foundation that evening.

The money directly funds Innovative Projects Grants. These 10 $500 awards will be presented though a competitive process to 10 Baldwin School District faculty members this fall. The faculty members will implement creative, unique projects in their classrooms next year. These grants are just one example of how the private dollars the Baldwin Education Foundation raises benefit the children of our district.

Our sincere thanks go out to those who attended and the Chamber for putting the event together.

Kathy Gerstner
