People on Island of Dominica to get more than a ton of books...
RHINELANDER - Several communities on the island of Dominica are one page closer to getting more than a ton and a half of books!
Sue and Brent Hanson of Rhinelander began collecting books in the Spring for their daughter Beth, who's working in the Peace Corps in Dominica.
Sue and Brent recently took the books to Wausau where the Good News Group stored them.
In October, the Air Force will fly the books for free to the island, and the people of Dominica should get them in November.
Sue says, "The people there have, you know, school supplies and reading, but this is going to be just something for the children to have on their own, to take home. They don't have a lot of personal books."
Sue says most of the education in Dominica is in English.
