The Holmen Area Rotary Club was honored to receive a grant  from Rotary District 6250 to help with the efforts on the Holmen Community Garden. The Garden was started last year and 2800 lbs of produce donated to the community. This year the amount of ground tilled was doubled and it is estimated that almost 7000 lbs of food will be harvested. The veggies went to St Elizabeth's Food Pantry, Hunger Task Force, WAFER, Prairie Home, McHugh Manor, Ponderosa, Senior Meals at the Village Hall, Holmen's Hope Community Dinner and other avenues. Josh Mansee, District 6250 Grants Sub Committee Chair  and District 6250 Assistant Governor Patt Boge presented Tom Knobloch and Scott Marshall with a check for $2950 which will be used to buy gardening equipment. Hoes, shovels, wagons, rototiller, mower and additional storage space.
