Five earn grants from C of C

May 25, 2017

A new addition to the Clare Irish Festival in 2017 was a fee to market a business in the Irish Festival parade. The revenues generated have been appropriated to go back to Community Non-Profit organizations. In the weeks following Irish Festival, organizations were able to apply for a Mini-Grant through the Clare Area Chamber of Commerce. There was $1000 generated from the parade and 5 organizations applied for the mini-grant, so each was recently awarded $200 each.

*Clare Railroad Depot Steering Committee $200 To be applied to the purchase of flooring materials for Clare’s Historic Depot
*Mid-Michigan Industries $200 Will provide supplies for the Community Lunch Box project
*Clare County Arts Council $200 To be applied to the Restoration of the Clare Depot
*Clare Parks & Recreation $200 To purchase supplies for a Seed Planting workshop to teach children about conservation
*Clare Public Schools $200 for the local Business Professionals of America chapter to use to offset competition costs and the purchase of needed materials
