Two Langdon locations receive funds from Bayer to build & continue outreach

Two places in Langdon, ND are receiving money from Bayer CropScience through the InVigor canola More for Everyone program to help them support continuing outreach to their community. The Langdon Day Care Center and Big Pembina Lutheran Church in Langdon will each receive $5,000 donation from Bayer CropScience. With their money, the day care will build an addition that will include a basement and additional classrooms and the church will use it to continue outreach activities.

“This award allows us to build a weather shelter, and the additional classroom space will allow us to divide the children into age groups, allowing us to continue serving children of all ages,” says Jackie Thom with the Langdon Day Care Center.

The day care is required to separate age groups by 2015 or stop serving certain age groups of children. With the new addition, the day care can continue to serve up to 60 children in the community.

A presentation awarding the day care with the More for Everyone donation was held at the Langdon Day Care Center June 27. Kyle Rollness, regional sale representative with Bayer CropScience joined area canola growers to present the award, one of 12 awards with donations totaling $32,000, to non-profit organizations across the state this year.

“This award can help the vitality of the community by helping out with various community outreach endeavors,” says Pastor Don Swenson of the Big Pembina Lutheran Church. “We’re elated to receive this award. The congregation is a tight-knit group that works together in unity and fun to help the community.”
