Coming to Dorchester: Banners for our main street light poles!
That's the word from the Dorchester Community Foundation and its leaders.
These new banners will line Washington Ave. -- Dorchester's main drive -- and help welcome residents and visitors to our community. Many of the citizens we have spoken with say this is the Foundation's best project yet and will be a key first step in improving the village's business district.
Currently, Foundation members are pondering the message and image that will be on the banners.
Established a decade ago, the Dorchester Community Foundation Fund is guided by one central mission: To raise funds for worthy projects that will enhance Dorchester and our quality of life. To become a member of the Dorchester Community Foundation, annual dues are $20 a person -- or a lifetime membership is $250.
Contributions to the Foundation are deductible for income and estate tax purposes. You may consider giving cash, outright gifts (including bushels of grain), memorial gifts, deferred gifts (trusts-life insurance policies etc.), gift annuity or real estate.
