Donation given to C-C Primary School library
CORRIGAN – A $500 donation to the Corrigan-Camden Primary School library was presented recently by the Polk County Retired Teachers Association. In addition to the cash donation, the association also donated books to the school was to help fulfi ll the goals of the Texas Children's Book Project, which call for each pre-kindergarten, kindergarten and fi rst grade student to be given his or her own book to take home. The group rotates their donation so that books go to different school districts each year. PCRTA is a service organization of retired school employees. Any retired school employee who draws a pension through Texas Teacher Retirement System is invited to become a member. During a recent meeting of PCRTA, a presentation about bee keeping was made by Karla Rudebusch, who together with her family own Rudy's Honey. The bee keeping business has been in operation for 33 years. At one time they traveled to Michigan for the spring and summer months and to Livingston for the fall and winter. Rudebusch explained that the pollen in different areas produces different honey. As their children grew, they decided to settle down to one location and in 1991 they chose to live in Polk County. Rudy's Honey can be found in local stores and they also ship barrels of honey elsewhere for commercial use.
