Letters: BETA board thankful for local grant support

To the editor:

BETA (Brown County Enrichment for Teens Association Inc.) would like to sincerely thank the Fabulous 50 Women’s Giving Circle for the $10,000 grant given to BETA during its annual meeting Feb. 3. With your generous support, BETA was able to establish the Designated Endowment Fund with the matching-fund privilege at the Brown County Community Foundation. Also BETA will be able to pay for a year the extra $400 monthly rental fee that has resulted from a move in early January.

We especially thank Betsy Lease, Jenise Bohbrink and Larry Pejeau for their wonderful guide and support.

Also, we would to sincerely thank Jan Swigert, president of Brown County Weekend Backpacks Program, for her gracious cheering and support for BETA during the annual meeting.

BETA teens, the board and volunteers are blessed with you all and thank you again.


Clara Stanley, BETA board president
