The Parks Department was awarded a grant for $6,000.00 from the Posey County Community Foundation Community Grants Program in October of 2020. This grant will be used to construct an open-air shelter at the Town Park. Upon receipt of the grant, the old shelter was torn down, but the concrete pad was left in place for re-use for the new shelter. Upon inspection it was determined that the old pad was too cracked and needed to be removed.
Update: The shelter is up and looking good. We have just one more bit to have this finished. We need concrete.
The Town of Poseyville reached out to the Community Foundation of Posey County to see what grants were available. The Women’s Fund Grants was accepting grant applications. We were so pleased to be considered.
The Parks department has received from The Women’s Fund grant program the amount needed for concrete. President Mike Baehl is working with volunteers and potentially an Eagle Scout for the labor /installation of the donated concrete. The town would like to thank this wonderful organization for their work on this grant and many others that this money served in the posey county area in the year of 2022.
