Grant award from REMC

Thank you, Southeastern Indiana REMC! The Switzerland County Historical Society was awarded a $2,000 grant from the Operation Roundup Fund to be used at the Thiebaud Farmstead. We will be installing electric in the hay press barn, providing for lighting and outlets that will broaden the opportunities for educational and entertainment activities there.
Thank you also to the REMC customers that contribute to this fund by “rounding up” their monthly electric bill to the nearest dollar amount. Your generosity provided $61,907 to be awarded to 33 recipients from 7 counties.
Geri Emmelman, SCHS secretary, and historical society director Martha Bladen accepted on behalf of the historical society at the awards ceremony in Osgood. Also present and awarded grants to organizations in Switzerland County was Peg Ehlers on behalf of the Purdue Extension and Cynthia Griffith on behalf of Switzerland County Elementary School.
