Buddy Blog 6/30/14
Today’s blog post features the community of Norwich, Connecticut. The Greater Norwich Anti-Bullying Coalition has teamed up with the Norwich Rotary Community Corps in an amazing way. Together, they hope to provide Buddy Benches to every school in the community (public, private, and parochial), for a total of 50 benches. More than 20 benches have been built so far and they are more than halfway to their fundraising goal! Each bench will be painted by local artists. Two of the hand-painted benches have been dedicated so far and many more will be dedicated at the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year. What a wonderful community effort! We can’t wait to see more pictures of these beautiful benches!

What is the Buddy Bench?
Roundtown Elementary helped make this possible, and we thank them for being receptive to Christian's idea!
