Norwell tennis gets donation

First Bank of Berne recently made a donation of $1,000 to the NHS Tennis Pavilion Campaign.

After retiring from coaching tennis for 34 years at Norwell, Terri Worden has decided to promote the project for the good of tennis at Norwell and the community.

Plans have been made to construct a 20- by 30-foot structure at the west end of the present 10 tennis courts.

It will provide a facility for team gatherings, protection from inclement weather, a place with electricity, serving counter, picnic tables for snacks and an improved storage unit.

The plan has been approved by NWCS superintendent Dr. Scott Mills, the school board, and head of maintenance, John Kochert.

Through the support of First Bank of Berne and other companies, it is hoped to be able to construct the building in the summer of 2011. Donations are tax deductible and the campaign is slated to end April 1, 2011.

Interested donors may contact Kristie George at 260-543-2213.
