Thanks for joining us at Cooper's 50th Anniversary Celebration

The Community Foundation for Crawford County would like to thank those who braved the rain to come get a grilled lunch and celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Cooper's Mill today. Cooper's Mill started their 50th Anniversary Celebration today from 11am - 2pm. The celebration will continue tomorrow, May 4th, from 11am - 2pm. For their celebration weekend, Cooper's is unveiling a new label for their famous apple butter, and customers can enjoy delicious samples, enter to win prizes and enjoy special savings on select products in the market.Friday's guest grillers and servers from the Foundation included Dr. Pete Maynard (Vice-Chairman of the Board), Brad Murtiff (Board Member), Jennifer Stirm (Development Committee Member), Casie Grau (Development Committee Member), Lisa Workman (President), and Amy Vaughn (Program & Office Manager). Cooper's Mill is generously donating all lunch proceeds to The Community Foundation for Crawford County's Come Home Scholarship Fund. "Cooper's has kicked off our efforts to raise money for another Come Home Scholarship," explained Lisa Workman. "Through these awards we are luring Crawford Countians to return home to live and work, and in return we assist with their college debt. By increasing our county's education attainment level, we are also causing a positive economic impact. We are trying to turn our brain drain into a brain gain."
