The Community Foundation for Crawford County Annual Fundraiser 12.3.19

Posted by Amy Vaughn on Fri, Nov 15, 2019

For the fifth year, The Community Foundation for Crawford County is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media. To counter Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it is always celebrated the 1st Tuesday after Thanksgiving – which this year falls on December 3. Since participants are welcome to embrace the day and make it their own, the Foundation calls it “#Giving2sday” as their Board sets aside a lump sum of money from which a second gift is generated for each donation. The “2” in the title is to help donors remember that their gift will inspire a second one.

Posted by Amy Vaughn on Thu, Oct 10, 2019

The fountain at Millennium Park on the square in downtown Bucyrus has been closed for the year. Shown here are two volunteer board members of the non-profit organization Projects, Inc, Mike Hoffman, President, and Ken Cameron, along with Dick Hulsmeyer, a volunteer, as they recently worked to clean and shut down the fountain. “We are fortunate that each year Advanced Fiber Technology graciously stores the fountain cover when it is not in use,” said Ken Cameron. “Phil and Leonard, Advanced Fiber Technology employees, were allowed time to haul the cover uptown and helped us install it over the fountain for winter.”
