“And now we’ll even have our own 12-foot ladder so we can change light bulbs and maintain the property,” said Kocher.

“Little things make a big difference, but it’s the little things that add up. We are profoundly grateful and proud to receive the grant from the Polk County Community Foundation. Local contractors will implement the improvements, keeping the dollars in Polk County – a win-win situation.”

The Unrestricted Grant is made up of monies given by benefactors like Bradley, Robertson, Williams, Plumley, Proudfoot, Kofodimus, Book of Memory Fund, Anonymous Fund and the general Unrestricted Fund. This fund has received significant support of recent planned gifts from Bertha Brown, John Lewis, Ramona Craddock, Paul Culberson, Marjorie Deobald, Harry and Dixie Evans, Paula St. George Joyce, Werner Mueller, Edwena Lee Ongar, Lawrence Pexton, Allan Safford, Dorcas R. Sparr and Esther Wallace.

“We are very lucky to have such generous and forward thinking citizens in this county who value our community,” said Kocher.
