Prairie Village Museum, Rugby Amateur Hockey Association and Good Samaritan Health Services Foundation have been awarded grants by the North Dakota Community Foundation. Checks were presented to these Rugby organizations last week by foundation president and CEO Kevin Dvorak and foundation board member David Trottier of Rugby.
The $3,000 museum grant will be used to replace skylights and repair roof of Machine Shed exhibit hall. The hockey association will use its $5,000 grant to defray costs for dasher boards, a compressor and Zamboni. The $3,079 received by Good Samaritan Health Services Foundation will be used to purchase new wheelchairs.
"The North Dakota Community Foundation is pleased to help make these organizations better and to make North Central North Dakota a better place to live," Dvorak said. More than 130 organizations applied to the foundation's unrestricted fund; 37 received grants.
The foundation was organized in 1976 as an efficient way to meet the educational, charitable, arts, scientific and health needs of North Dakotans. The foundation administers charitable endowment and non-endowment funds on behalf of communities, businesses, non-profit organizations and individuals.

Thank you for the wonderful care I received at Heart of America Medical Center and Johnson Clinic. Even though my stay was brief, their care for me was the best. Charlotte Brandt, Rugby
