On Friday, May 3rd, PCCU offices hosted an ice cream social to benefit the Hoosier Explorers Field Trip Fund. The staff set up self-serve ice cream and topping bars that gave members free reign to assemble their own personalized frozen treats at no cost! Instead we collected free-will donations to the Field Trip Fund. Thanks to the generosity of members like Myron of Hagerstown and staff we collected more than $465 to help send local fourth graders on field trips in Indiana. A shining example of the power of people working together!
On that same day, fourth graders from Western Wayne Elementary School in Cambridge City took a Fund sponsored trip to Connor Prairie in Noblesville. They had the opportunity to see first-hand what life was like in Indiana in the 1800s at this excellent interactive museum and interpretative center, which includes a working farm and numerous artisans and craftspeople demonstrating their skills.
The following week fourth grade students from Blue River Elementary School in Prairie Township took a trip to Victory Field in Indianapolis for an Indians game. They got a chance to learn lessons in such varied subjects as math, English, science, and history while also enjoying America’s pastime.
Both of these trips and more were made possible because members and staff at PCCU dug deep and chipped in to help with the transportation costs. Thank you for your generosity and making our vision of “People Helping People” a reality!
