FARM BUREAU and
BAYER CROP SCIENCE
STATE HISTORICAL SOCIETY
A grant received from the state historical society is going to allow to us to appropriately store our 4-H history and O.H. Benson's role in archival material. Part of our collection includes one-of-a-kind items that we hope to preserve for a long time.
Farm Bureau recently donated funds to our Wildilfe project, and Bayer Crop Science finalized the funding. We are working on our Prairie area in Ag Hall to showcase different Iowa wildlife and how it can be beneficial to us.
KEEP IOWA BEAUTIFUL GRANT
We received paint. Part of what needed paint was the cupola on the schoolhouse.
Iowa Arts Marketing Grant
For the first time ever, we were able to have a billboard made. It is on Interstate 35, north of US 30 exchange. We also advertised in Heritage Iron and Antique Power.
Hagie Manufacturing sent us a money which bought two new trees by the schoolhouse, we've added flowers under the 4-H schoolhouse sign and under the windmill, along with two sides of the school. We plan to plant a couple of bushes also!
Hotel/Motel Tax Grant
Outdoor Signage was courtesy of the Hotel/Motel grant. These are part of the signs we had - handmade in Iowa.
