With the end of the school year approaching, we are making every effort to reduce the amount of product we have on hand over the summer months. This is to ensure we are offering nothing but the best and freshest products to our students and customers. We will make every effort to ensure that we have all of the products needed according to the menu; however, situations can and do arise in which we must adjust our menus. Menu changes will be updated daily to our online Menu system Nutrislice. Please monitor Windber Area School District Social Media sites as well as for any changes that may be required. If there are any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank You for your continued patronage this school year!

Little League Challenger Division - Ages 4 to 22

VE Arbutus (VEA) is a local Baseball and Softball League with fields located in the Richland area of Johnstown. We are chartered under Little League International. It is our belief that all kids should have the opportunity to play baseball. The Little League Challenger Division is Little League’s adaptive baseball program for individuals with physical and intellectual challenges. Although VEA does not yet have an established full season challenger division, we are seeking interest to participate in VEA's first challenger game during our social weekend in June. The challenger game would be open to players age 4-22. The game would be a stress-free game with a focus of having fun. We anticipate that there would little to no cost to participate. If we get enough interest, we tentatively plan on having the challenger game June 1 at 5:00 PM.
