SCICF Grant Awards

Lamoni Freedom Fund Grant Recipients

On December 6, 2023,  grant recipients of the Lamoni Freedom Fund, a SCICF endowment, were recognized and awarded their funds.  

The Lamoni Freedom Fund was created by a generous donation years ago from a family that loved the Lamoni community.  Lamoni benefits from the interest made from that donation every year.  Approximately $30,000 goes back to the Lamoni community for projects, repairs and services needed.  

Pictured in the back row left to right are Shirley Kessel (Lamoni Safe Coalition for interior upgrades), Jim Jones (Rose Hill Cemetery for gravestone repairs), Doug Foster (City of Lamoni for kayak launch for Home Pond and Lake Leshane and airport pilot lounge remodel), Jonathan Mullock (Lamoni Police Department for personal protective gear & advanced training), Tim Brunner (Lamoni Parks and Recreation for Central Park gazebo roof replacement).  In the front row,  left to right are Dan Heffron (Rock ‘n’ Play Cinematography & Art Camp), Kimberly Stretch (Lamoni FFA chapter for updated cooling & watering system for school greenhouse), Gwen Simpson (Lamoni Food Pantry for fresh produce), Melissa Leonard (Crown Colony for window A/C units and accordion doors), Amber Fairbanks and Amy Sellars (Lamoni Community Schools for archery equipment, music instruments, and a sensory room) and Teresa Greenwood, SCICF Advisory member.  Not pictured: Funshine Learning Center for infant room improvements.
