Community Harvest is offering a Farm Wagon Program for families in need. The program will be set up every Tuesday at 9am at Life Community Church in Bluffton. (428 S Oak St.)
If there are families interested in Christmas assistance this year, please contact Miss Wilson for details. The open spots will fill up in the next couple of weeks due to the organization having to reduce their amount of families they are able to help this year. Please let me know as soon as possible if this is of interest to you.

Community-Based WI-FI Access Point Host Sites
Needed for Southern Wells Community Schools
Southern Wells Community Schools recently received a substantial Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Fund (GEER) competitive grant to support internet connectivity in our communities where students live. A portion of the $714,563 federal dollars awarded will be allocated to install Wi-Fi access points in community locations within the four Wells county townships served by Southern Wells Community Schools along with communities of Warren, Montpelier, and Pennville. The goal of installing the Wi-Fi access points is to provide internet connectivity in the greater community when schools move to remote instruction and students are not in the brick and mortar schools for daily instruction.
Southern Wells Community Schools is looking for communities sites (local government/town, community-based organizations, churches, public service sites, community centers, etc.) willing to “host” a Wi-Fi access point for student access. Access points will be installed where internet is already available OR where internet is not currently available. Using the latest technology, Southern Wells Community Schools will make these access points available for student use 24/7 for remote learning capability. Students will either walk or drive up near the facility and log in to the internet. Those community-based sites that have existing internet will be equipped with a Wi-Fi access point for students to login using their already-defined login credentials. Those community-based sites that lack internet at their site, will simply host a device in their secured facility to allow students to login using already-defined login credentials. Any local government/town, community-based organization, church, public service site, or community center without the Southern Wells Community Schools education service area interested in hosting Wi-Fi should contact the school district office with a contact individual, telephone number, and email contact address. District personnel will need to know if internet is available or not available at the site. Southern Wells looks forward to the opportunity to join our community partners in providing internet connectivity for students in our greater community!
Superintendent Brian Sloan looks forward to building on the solid partnerships that exist in our school community through this community-based internet connectivity program. Please contact the school district at 765/728-5537 for more information and to join the community partner list. The school district is looking for 20 sites to host a Wi-Fi access device near the end of September.
