On Friday, October 25th, the students in Knit for a Cause visited 5 Miles East, an alpaca farm near Bloomington. While there, they got to pet the alpacas, learn about the process of shearing an animal and making it into yarn, as well as participating in crafts! They felted alpaca and sheep fiber to make beads for earrings and keychains. They also stuffed grapevine balls with alpaca fiber; these balls will hang from the trees in spring for birds to use the fiber in their nest! It might have been chilly, but it was smiles all around as they soaked up the information and fun!

Did you know 54 counties in Illinois have already passed the 1% Sales Tax for schools? 5 out of 6 neighboring counties have passed it. The 1¢ Tazewell County School Facility Sales Tax proposal asks voters to approve a countywide, one-cent sales tax. The revenue from this sales tax would go towards funding school facility improvements across the county and provide an opportunity for school districts to reduce the reliance on local property tax. How will funds from the sales tax be used for Washington Schools? Funds from this sales tax can be used only for maintaining, renovating and upgrading existing school facilities, for new construction and for abatement of property taxes. PLEASE VOTE: April 2, 2019
