The Giving Tree: an SCA program where we accept donations for local Vernon families who could use a little help around the holidays. We ask our community for donations, no matter how big or small, to help make the season a little brighter for our neighbors. Thanks to your generosity we raised enough money to help 71 Vernon Children for the 2022 Holidays!

Walnut Ridge School thanks you and your family for sharing your children with us.
