The North Lane Regional Leadership Team was recently honored to receive a $3,000 grant from the Oregon Country Fair’s Bill Wooten Endowment Fund to support Roots of Empathy in Fern Ridge-area classrooms. The team’s grant proposal was also recognized with the Leslie Scott Imagine Grant Award, which goes to a grantee “whose proposal’s excellence is recognized by receiving one of the larger grants made by the committee.”

The Bill Wooten Endowment Fund supports youth-oriented programs in the Fair’s home community of Fern Ridge and memorializes Bill Wooten, the fair’s visionary, community-minded co-founder.

Thank you, OCF – and congratulations, North Lane!
