The Norfolk Area Retired School Personnel group has always adopted and given funds to Norfolk schools. This year, they adopted Neligh-Oakdale.
Treasurer Marlene Petersen of Neligh said the group has adopted Neligh-Oakdale's elementary school for the 2015-16 year. On Monday, she presented a check to secretary Tina Wilson, in lieu of elementary Principal Mary Schrader who was out of town.
Petersen said $131 was collected to help Neligh-Oakdale purchase school supplies for students who need them. She said later in the year, they group will take rolls to both elementary and high school staff to recognize their efforts.
The Norfolk Area Retired School Personnel is made up of members from Norfolk, Neligh, Tilden, Pierce, Emerson, Battle Creek, Hoskins, Stanton and Plainview. They meet every other month on the third Saturday at the Norfolk Senior Center.
The next meeting will be Sept. 19, at 9:30 a.m. with entertainment and a short meeting to follow. All retired personnel in the area are welcome to attend.
