BLRA Receives $1,000 Grant from Boone Electric Community Trust  (Announcements)
The Boone's Lick Road Association is pleased to announce it has received a $1,000 grant from the Boone Electric Community Trust. These funds will assist with the Boone County Bicentennial project in 2020 by supporting a traveling covered wagon display that will be available to area events plus an exhibit on early (c 1820s) transportation at the Boone County History and Culture Center.
This is the first such grant received by the BLRA and it will cover a major portion of costs involved in helping Boone County celebrate its bicentennial next year. Our involvement was sought through the Boone County Bicentennial Committee and commissioner Janet Thompson. The projects are being coordinated by David Sapp with terrific support from Greg Olson (graphic design), Lisa Heffernan Weil, Bill and Judy Heffernan, Nancy Thomas, and Sheldon Toepke. Dr. Larry Brown will facilitate the covered wagon talks at different locations in the county. If you would like to be involved as we move ahead, please contact David.
Trust Chair Darrel Hansen said: "The trust is excited to provide this funding to Boone's Lick Road Association. Knowing that the Trust is supporting this group's efforts to help provide an educational element to the Boone County Bicentennial celebration resonates with the trust's mission of 'Making a Difference.'"
The Boone Electric Community Trust provides grants through an application and review process. Eligible 501(c)(3) organization and public entities, such as public schools may apply for funding six (6) times per years. More information can be found at
