Several years ago, a few energetic, forward-looking residents of our community thought Dorchester could use a little boost. They established a non-profit affiliated fund of the Nebraska Community Foundation -- and ever since, the Dorchester Community Foundation has been a force for positive change.
Today, we are asking readers to donate to the Foundation -- to give back to the community that has provided so many great memories and a great way of life.
The Dorchester Community Foundation has been instrumental in various projects since 2007. These include:
- The city park's new playground equipment and picnic shelter;
- Annual scholarships;
- The Charlie Havlat Memorial at the Saline County Museum;
- The new welcome sign along Highway 33.
- The new "welcome banners" on the light poles in town.
Contributions to the Foundation are deductible for income and estate tax purposes.
Whether it's a donation of $10, $25, $50, $100 or more, your generosity will help keep momentum going in Dorchester.
