We're offering plant-in-the-spring bulbs and bare root flowers that will be sent directly to your home.  Funds raised through this effort will pay for expenses associated with our 8-week Summer Reads program and the Children's Garden. 

You and your garden will be helping to make Ely a Great Place to Grow Up!  Our partner, Flower Power Fundraising, has an easy-to-use website for your ordering convenience.  Simply click on the link below or contact ECR for an order form ~ 365-5254!

News:  ECR Seeks to create a 21st Century Community Learning Center

We have been invited by the Minnesota Department of Education to submit a proposal to create a Community Learning Center in collaboration with Ely Schools. In recognition of the need for schools to teach more than "reading, writing, and arithmetic", 21st Century Schools goals are to increase opportunities for youth to develop critical thinking and problem solving, communication, collaboration, and creativity and innovation.  21st Century Community Learning Centers are designed to provide opportunities to develop those attributes as a community invested in making school a good experience for youth and improving academic performance. The supportive Ely community is a great fit for this grant because ECR already has so many wonderful partners! Grant awards will be announced later this spring--look for new opportunities to be part of making Ely a GREAT PLACE TO GROW UP!
