PCCFF Update: PCCFF to host kiddie carnival

Article Image Alt Text

The Perkins County Community Foundation does more than just serve as Perkins County’s savings account and help put money back into the county by investing in worthy projects that benefit its citizens, we also have a little fun now and then. 

One of these fun activities that we have coordinated the past three years is the kiddie carnival at the Perkins County Fair, and we are going to do it again this year. 

Thanks to our board member Jeff Wallin, the kiddie carnival became a reality three years ago. With the expo building not being used as much any more, and with fewer and fewer kids activities taking place at the fair, Jeff came up with the idea for the kiddie carnival.

After building all of the wooden booths himself, Jeff also made the ticket booth and organized the prizes and tickets. With help from the PCCFF members, along with Michelle Ross who organized additional volunteers to help run the booths, the carnival was a success, adding another fun aspect to the fair for the kids.

As the PCCFF board gets ready to put on the carnival again at this year’s fair, July 18-20, we are looking for volunteers to help man the booths each evening of the fair. 

If you would be interested in helping to provide a fun time for the children of our community, please call Jeff Wallin at 308-352-8612.

Congratulations to Keith County

There are some moments in life that just take your breath away, one of these happened last week when the Keith County Community Foundation Fund received an unrestricted charitable gift in the amount of $7 million! 

Yes, you read that right! WOW! What an amazing gift someone gave to help keep Keith County viable for many, many years. 

We at the Perkins County Community Foundation Fund want to say congratulations to the Keith County Fund and also want to ask them to maybe remember their friends down south when considering what they are going to do with all of that money. 

Applications continue to be accepted and Enews

Just a reminder that the PCCFF continues to accept requests for funding from the public. Our first round of funding is coming to a close, but our next round will begin July 1, running through Dec. 1. 

Those who have questions, or would like an application, can contact me at beckyuehling@hotmail.com or Treasurer Michelle Ross at michelle.ross@pinnbank.com

The PCCFF is also in the process of implementing an e-newsletter that will be sent quarterly. If you would like to receive this newsletter, please let me know.
