Lorelei Yates at Madison School has been taking her students to Fog Willow Farm for years. This October was no different – 155 students piled on the bus and “they had a wonderful experience at the farm. They participated in many hands-on activities they could never have done if it weren’t for this trip such as: petting and feeding baby animals, combing a lamb, riding on a hayride, observing a live beehive, making their own bale of hay, climbing a haystack tower and picking their very own pumpkin from the pumpkin patch. The children especially loved riding in a big yellow school bus for the first time!”
When we asked if they could have taken this trip without DREAM help, Ms. Yates explained “No. The cost of transportation alone would prevent us from taking such a trip. Admission of $7.00 per child is hard for many of our families as well so the funding helps us to reduce the cost per child as well. The funding is crucial in helping us take our children on such trips.”
