Ritchie County High School Band benefits from grant

HARRISVILLE — The Ritchie County Community Foundation has awarded $5,000 to the Ritchie County High School Band Boosters to provide assistance with the purchase of new band uniforms.

Foundation Advisory Chairman Alan Haught and Advisory Board member Scott Windom presented the check to Band Director James Flesher at the Aug. 7 Band Boosters meeting.

“We were truly blessed and thankful to receive this support for our band uniform project,” said Band Booster President Jennifer Flesher.

The foundation, a regional affiliate of the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation, said it works with charitable individuals to make a positive and permanent commitment for the future of the county. The grant was made possible through the Ritchie County Community Endowment, a charitable fund that provides resources to meet Ritchie County’s ongoing needs and support its growth.

“This grant award served as a catalyst for the support that we gained in efforts to purchase our band uniforms,” said James Flesher.
