LIMERICK PA – An outdoor education center at Limerick Elementary School, 81 Limerick Center Rd., Limerick PA, will be the beneficiary of a $15,000 contribution from Exelon Nuclear’s Limerick Generating Station, LGS spokesman Joseph Szafran announced today (Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2010) by e-mail.

A formal presentation of Exelon’s check to the Limerick Elementary School Home and School League, attended by several dignitaries, is scheduled for Friday (Feb. 12) at 10 a.m.

The money will be used to help create an outdoor classroom intended to “provide a more attractive courtyard at the school,” Szafran said, as well as offer solar and wind study facilities, an archaeological dig site, soil study area and an assembly area.

Scheduled to attend the presentation ceremony are Spring-Ford School District Superintendent Marsha Hurda, Limerick’s Congressman Jim Gerlach, state Sen. John Rafferty and state Rep. Tom Quigley, and Chris Mudrick, LGS site vice president.

Exelon is the latest of among several business and individual donors to the outdoor classroom project. Last year, Szafran noted, Exelon and its employees contributed more than $500,000 to local charities and public service organizations.
