School Supply Drive A Success

(Beaver Dam)  Students attending Lincoln Elementary School in Beaver Dam will soon have some extra supplies for the school year thanks to a successful collection campaign by the Local Modern Woodmen and Higher Grounds Coffee Shop.  On September 21st, the two entities came together and collected over 225 items including crayons, scissors, tissues, glue sticks, and backpacks.  Cassandra Schmidt, volunteer leader of the local Modern Woodmen, says they are “so happy to support our community in this way.  Events like this give our members an opportunity to make a difference.”  Annually the Modern Woodmen and it’s members provide nearly $20 million and over 400,000 volunteer hours for community projects nationwide.
