Youth membership program

Published 9:24 am Thursday, January 20, 2011

Bob Danner from Alliant Energy presented a $3,000 Community Grant check to Dennis Dieser of the Albert Lea Family Y. The money received from Alliant Energy will go to the third grade level sponsorship for the Membership Program. This program provides a sponsorship to all third-graders in Freeborn County at no cost. By involving the youth at an early age makes families feel more comfortable seeking financial assistance for membership as students get older. No one is ever denied membership to the Albert Lea Family Y due to the inability to pay. -- Submitted photo
