Oregon-Davis School Board Accepts Donations for Music Department

The Oregon-Davis Music Department has gotten almost $1,000 in donations. A $665 donation from the Knox Masonic Lodge and a $300 grant from the Cheryl Lyn Welter Family Charitable Foundation were accepted by the school board Monday, according to Superintendent Dr. Don Harman.

O-D’s Bobcat Blast newsletter says the Welter Foundation funds will be used to provide reeds and other instrument-related items to band students who wouldn’t be able to afford them. The school board also accepted a $250 donation from the Northern Indiana Community Foundation for High School Math Teacher Maggie Vogel.
