County Heritage Trust fundraising challenge nearing deadline
The Henry County Heritage Trust (HCHT) fundraising challenge, made possible by Jared Hills, is winding down.
Last spring, Hills offered to match dollar for dollar, up to $50,000 to make the Howard and Helen Hills Henry County Museum (formerly Saunders School) handicap accessible.
Lea Bradley reports that donations and pledges received at this time amount to roughly $47,000.
Bradley urges those who are still interested in donating may do so by calling her at 319-931-0671. The deadline for making donations to the matching challenge is Dec. 31, 2016.
