Two new local initiatives received $1,000 Community Engagement Grants at Friday's Lunch on the Plaza event. CEGs are selected by Montgomery County Community Foundation board members. Amy Cooper chose NOURISH to receive one of the grants. This new program will address food insecurity in school age children here in Montgomery County

Dale Petrie directed a CEG to the Crawfordsville Parks & Recreation Department and it will be used to make improvements to the new Dr. Kathleen Steele Park. The park is the former Mills School playground which the Crawfordsville School Corporation has donated to the City. It has been named to honor newly retired Superintendent, Dr. Steele who was on hand Friday to accept the grant.
