February 12th, 2008
The Trumansburg Central
School District Foundation Inc., is thrilled to award a total amount of
$5,695 to fund five proposals to benefit the students in the
Trumansburg Central School District.
Foundation was able to award these funds with generous donations from
the Tompkins Trust Company, The Gothic Eves Bed and Breakfast and with
donations from private individuals.
"The generous gift given by Tompkins Trust Company has afforded us the
opportunity to gather other resources and then grant these combined
funds to many terrific endeavors in the Trumansburg School District,"
said TCSD Foundation President Tara Masters.
The grants awarded funded the following five programs:
The TCSD Foundation had the
pleasure of awarding the funds to the High School and Elementary School
the last week of January 2008 as part of the Foundation’s semi-annual
drug prevention and health and wellness speaker for a full assembly and
parent talk at the Trumansburg High School. Dan Davis is
internationally known and his programs focus on education, drug-free
youth, youth leadership, team building and positive role modeling.

Elementary School Library. In addition to the Playaway books, which
will be a core lending library, are nonfiction books which relate to
