Thank you, CFMC!

CFMClogo430pxls
NISRA is grateful to the Community Foundation for McHenry County for its generous $15,000 donation from its General Operating Grants Program! Microsoft's support for Windows 7 ends in January 2020, so the grant will be used to purchase computers with Windows 10. NISRA's rotating replacement schedule for our computers, which range from five to eight years old, makes it cost-prohibitive to replace a majority of computers in one year. So the Foundation's grant is invaluable! Learn more at www.mccfdn.org

Special Olympics 
NISRA needs sports officials! Currently we need umpires for softball and officials for football. If you, or someone you know may be interested, please contact Kara at the NISRA Office for details.
