Our son, Ryland Hutchins, has decided instead of Birthday gifts for his 5th Birthday this year he would like to give back to his community. This is the fundraiser we all decided on. Ryland is very excited about helping the kids at the Bert Goens Learning Center, and every bit is very much appreicated. Thank you!!

In the spring of 2015, it was brought to my attention as Principal of the Bert Goens Learning Center (Lawrence, MI) that our playground desperately needs updating and improvement after almost 20 years of use. We went to work on this project and created a plan that meets the needs of our students. The playground renovation will provide our students with a wide range of improved learning and playing activities. Parents, teachers, administrators, and friends of the Learning Center have already made donations toward the goal of raising $150,000, however, more donations are needed. I hope that you will generously contribute to this project.
The Playground Project became critical to me in May of 2016 when I was diagnosed with stage IV brain cancer. My goal is to raise the funds now for the completion of the playground and see the students learning and playing in their new facility. Your donation will be greatly appreciated by me and by the students of the Learning Center. Thank you for your generosity.
