The Marshall County REMC Operation Round Up® board of directors awarded $2,000 to the Marshall County Historical Society Inc. on July 26.
The Marshall County Historical Society Inc. promotes awareness and appreciation for the unique history of Marshall County and Indiana through the collection, preservation and display of local artifacts and documents. The organization strives to make its extensive collection available for education, personal discovery and research purposes in a highly interactive environment.
The Marshall County Historical Society Inc. will use the funding to purchase and install a “Farm to Table” hands-on exhibit for the youngest visitors.
The space will include a “garden” and an “orchard” with pickable produce, a fishing hole, a henhouse with eggs to be collected and a farmer’s market with a cash register.
The Operation Round Up program allows Marshall County REMC members to reach out to worthy causes in the community and work together to help others. Thank you to those members who round up their electric bills to the next highest dollar each month and to the Marshall County Community Foundation for making these donations possible.
The next round of grants will be awarded in October. Charitable organizations within the Marshall County REMC service territory are eligible to apply. The organization does not have to be a member of Marshall County REMC.
Applications can be picked up at the REMC office or downloaded at www.marshallremc.com.
