Cheryl Curry Executive Director of the Port Authority said upon receiving the check, “We appreciate this support from 3 Rivers. The kitchen will service the Senior Center and also be available for public use which can be rented for such things as family reunions, receptions, community meetings or special events.”

Conrad schools will be welcoming a new organization to their ranks, the Parent Teacher Association, or PTA. PTA is a national and state organization that can be set up around any school system and is open to all in the community. Even kids are invited to join and participate. Every person who joins a local PTA automatically becomes a member of both the state and national PTAs.
The PTA works as an open forum between teachers, parents and the community to bridge communication and funding gaps. Each person who wishes to join, pays a yearly fee. Five dollars of this fee is then sent to the National PTA and the rest is pooled to fund events and classroom needs. The PTA helps to organize volunteers for the classroom and events.
