The Family & Children’s Center in Vernon County has a brighter future. That is thanks to some donors.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony Wednesday for a new solar panel project gave community members the chance to celebrate the project. The addition is at the Center’s Viroqua offices. Three private donors and grantors made the project a reality. The new addition will power the offices.
