• Class of '69 donates to capital campaign

    board donateAt a Bellefonte Area school board meeting on Sept. 10, a $2,000 check was presented to the board on behalf of the Class of 1969 that celebrated its 50th year reunion. It's meant to go toward the capital campaign to help fund Rogers Stadium construction and renovation and other athletic facilities. Members of the class were given a tour of the newly-completed facility, which members said they are proud of and excited for the chance for the school and community to use.
