Grants Awarded

October 2011: The Energy Cooperative Grant
The Granville Recreation District took part in a local utility company, The Energy Cooperative’s Community Service Program called Operation Round Up. The program “rounds up” a member’s bill to the nearest dollar and that amount (which is completely tax deductible) is donated to local charities in their service area. All funds stay in the community to benefit the members of The Energy Cooperative.

Each month The Energy Cooperative’s Round Up Board of Directors selects multiple community groups to award grant money, for items the community groups applied for. The Granville Recreation District was one of the community groups awarded funds in October. We have been awarded a grant of $4,680.00 to purchase (4) sets of bleachers for the Softball/Baseball fields at Raccoon Valley Park that will be installed and ready for the 2012 Softball/Baseball Season.
