Wheatland Electric and CoBank recently renewed their Sharing Success program, bringing their combined total donations to $60,000. Since the fund’s inception in 2012, Wheatland and CoBank have each donated $30,000 to the program. Since renewing the fund in May, four $1,000 grants have been awarded.
The HAMILTON COUNTY VETERANS MEMORIAL ORGANIZATION recently received a $1,000 grant for their ongoing renovation and restoration of the local Veterans Memorial building. The building was constructed in 1949 as a joint venture between the local VFW and American Legion Posts. Used regularly throughout the years, the building served as a popular place to hold family gatherings, dances, community events and veterans’ activities. Lack of funding and regular maintenance in recent years left the building in a severe state of disrepair. In January 2015, local veterans, with the support of the local community, undertook the task of raising funds to restore the building.
The restoration project received a $1,000 grant from the Sharing Success fund in 2015 as part of their initial fundraising efforts. To date, more than $168,000 has been raised along with another $5,000 in donated materials. The project is nearing completion with the remaining repairs being focused on final restoration f the building’s kitchen.
