Altrusa wins $2,000 grant


In mid-2016 the Washington C.H. Altrusa club got its Little Free Library project off and running. This two-year-old photo taken during the July 2016 Bloomingburg Community Days shows three Bloomingburg youngsters enjoying the treasures inside the well-crafted box set next to the Town Hall. At the request of Altrusan Janet Martin, Miami Trace High School teacher Bruce Bennett had encouraged two of his creative FFA students to construct the library box.
