IFG Supports ‘Reading Buddies’ Program: Grangeville Elementary Middle School kicked off its third annual Reading Buddies program last Thursday, Sept. 21. The reading incentive program is geared toward kindergarten to first-grade GEMS students, providing various levels of fun activities with a stuffed animal for the numbers of books read. Idaho Forest Group (IFG) Grangeville has sponsored the project each year, providing Reading Buddies stuffed animals for students at GEMS and also Sts. Peter and Paul School. This year, more than 180 were purchased for the program. Pictured at the Sept. 21 GEMS presentation were IFG employees (L-R) Adam Miller, Laurie Eckert, Meagan Bashaw, Heidi Shafer, Tracy Gilmore and Sheryl Workman.
