No alpaca wool at the old school building yet


Interest in acquiring Center School for a fiber mill is on hold.

Vicki Eberhart, president of the North American Wool Cooperative in Oroville, said Tuesday that her group is active in another project in Oroville and will make a decision on Center School after the current project is complete and a feasibility study is made.

The NAWC had indicated an interest in developing a small fiber mill in the old school and using it for an education center for the industry.

Eberhart said Tuesday that the project of a mill in the Oroville area has taken priority and that when it is complete the NAWC will take another look at Grand Coulee.

Eberhart had stated in December that the group was waiting on financing before making a decision to purchase the school from the Grand Coulee Dam School District. The school was vacated two years ago when the new district complex was completed.
