Thorsby Curling Club, which has been inactive since the late 80s, has turned over $11,000 to the Thorsby Elementary School for the purchase of a set of handbells for the music program, and a total of $16,338 to the Thorsby High School.
The high school will distribute the money as follows: $12,000 for physical education scholarships, $2,500 for a portable stage to be used by the school as well as the community. $1,000 towards the purchase of wood for the Industrial Arts students to build benches for the gym and receive school credits and $838 for school sports equipment.
In late 2013, former curling club executives John Huculak, Ed Letilley and Clarence Kison turned over the money to Thorsby Elementary School. Thorsby High School received its donation in 2014. The students of Thorsby and the surrounding area will benefit from this generous donation. Both schools have been very appreciative of the money they have received from the curling club.
Thank you to the Thorsby and District Curling Club.
