The Arc of Jefferson and Nearby Counties Board met recently and reported that all schools will be contacted by January 1st with their scholarship information. Also Darlene Vorhies reported that $3,413.50 was collected from the auction at this year’s County Fair. All monies will go to help support Arc camperships. The Board also voted to finance the remaining balance for a camper who attended Camp Reece this past summer. The eligibility guidelines for financial assistance have been completed and will be sent to our local schools and are available to individuals as needed. The guidelines define the criteria students/individuals must meet to request financial assistance from the Arc to attend Camp Courageous, Reece or Sunnyside.
