Well what happens when you decide to try to win a grant from Pepsi??? Your life becomes consumed with voting and promoting. No time for blogging. So we are very far behind here. We voted throughout the months of March April and May. We did very well, as we ended up in 4th place each time competing against projects from across the country, some nationwide and many from communities much larger than ours.
We decided to pull our entry from the running and focus our efforts on the center and other means of financial support.
We thank all of you for your support during that voting period. We saw what this small town could do if they put their minds toward it. The Alton Park and Rec, Alton High School and Sts. Peter and Paul School did win their grants.
We will try again in the coming months and will ask for your support again. We can do it if we try! For now, back to work on the center!
