A new community facility in Grainfield will be constructed thanks in part to a $17,600 grant from the Foundation, Logan awarded to the Grainfield Community Development Committee.
The new facility will be located on Main Street in Grainfield and will serve as the home to the Grainfield Community Development Committee. The group hopes it will also serve as a satellite location for Castle Rock Wellness Center, Quinter, offering basic exercise equipment for members. The meeting room will be available to boy and girl scout troops and other community groups. The boy scouts and girl scouts that meet there will also be able to display projects and awards. Scouts in the local troops come from Hoxie, Park, Grinnell and Grainfield.
In addition to this grant from the Hansen Foundation, the group also received funding through the local funds offered by the Foundation in each county. Volunteers will assist with completion of the project whenever possible, including members of the scout troops.
