  • Jeremy reported that grant applications have been submitted to both the Oregon Community Foundation and the Ford Family Foundation. The site visit by OCF on March 4 went extremely well. In April, a grant application will be submitted to Meyer Memorial Trust.
  • Curry Public Library Foundation of Gold Beach: Members have been selected and appointed to the foundation board: Carl King, Bryan Grummon, Gina Jorgensen, Corinne McGuinness, John Rush, Andy Wright, and Phoebe Skinner.
