Ellery Panthers 4-H Club Receives Grant From Farm Credit Illinois | To live in the countryside
Farm Credit Illinois recently awarded a community improvement grant in the amount of $ 500 to the Ellery Panthers
Edwards County 4-H Club.
The club will use grant funds to build physiotherapy stages for Little Prairie Pre-school and provide sensory guidance for students.
The Ellery Panthers 4-H Club was one of 50 4-H clubs and chapters of the FFA to receive a Community Improvement Grant. This year, Farm Credit Illinois awarded a total of $ 25,000 in grants to clubs and chapters that make tangible contributions in their communities by implementing an improvement project.
The Ellery Panthers 4-H Club is always looking for opportunities to “give back” and share with its neighbors. Many of our club members attended Little Prairie Preschool in their early years. Monthly club meetings are held at Little Prairie Christian Church, home of the preschool. The 4-H club contacted preschool teachers and the need for a set of therapeutic steps was mentioned.
Club leaders wrote for a farm credit grant and received $ 500.00 for the project. Club leader Greg Shelton was indispensable for this project, bringing his knowledge of the construction process, as well as the equipment and workshop space to complete the project.
Various club members and club parents assisted in the process. When the final polyurethane is applied, the steps will be presented to Little Prairie Kindergarten by the Ellery Panthers 4-H Club.
