Frederickson Fund donates money for new books in Atlantic Schools


January 14th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The Trevor Frederickson Fund in Atlantic recently provided a boost to the Schuler and Washington Elementary Libraries, by donating $1,000 for new books to those libraries. Fund representative Melanie Petty said she was able to visit with Janice Dickerson, Atlantic School Librarian, and view a series of Major League Baseball books she was able to purchase for Schuler Elementary.

Melanie says her son Trevor loved the Big Leagues, especially the Chicago Cubs.  She says they were also able to contribute approximately 32 new books to Washington Elementary. It’s the second year the Fund has been able to help out the libraries.

Petty says the children of our community are our future, and as the community continues to support the Foundation through the annual T-Fred Memorial Golf Tournament, they will continue to support the community of Atlantic. The Trevor Frederickson Memorial Fund was established after the 21-year old Atlantic native died during a Council Bluffs house fire, in June 2009. The fund raises money by hosting the annual T-Fred Memorial Golf Tournament.
