BOND COUNTY UNIT 2 BOARD MEETING AND FLU SHOTS

 

The Bond County Community Unit 2 School Board met Monday night at the Pocahontas Center. An important discussion of the evening concerned the proposal of offering H1N1 vaccines to the students in the district. District school nurse Ann Zahniser presented a plan, prepared by the Bond County Health Department, about immunizing district students. According to Zahniser, the health department recommends flu shots at all the school centers in the district. Children in grades six and below must have a parent present before a shot is given. Children in grades seven and above just need a parental form filled out and signed to receive the flu shot. These flu shots are optional.

VANDALIA RECEIVES GRANT

 

Vandalia city officials recently received news that their National Road Interpretive Center has been awarded a six-figure grant. The grant, through the Federal Highway Administration National Scenic Byways Program, is in the amount of $101,750. This grant will cover the creation of interpretive panels and displays, but not operational costs. This money will help the interpretive center continue to develop. Because Vandalia was the original terminus of the Historic National Road, it is the ideal location for the interpretive center. The city of Vandalia owns and provided the historic Sonnemann Lumber Building, located at 106 South 5th Street, to house the center. The center officially opened this year, on February 12, and is open for visitation Wednesday through Saturday, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. or by appointment. To schedule a tour, call 283-1534.
