Mid-South RC&D was excited to do a press event tour of Lowndes County and Butler County for the 2019 and 2020 Grantees. Our first stop was in Lowndes County at the Town of Mosses, where they were able to provide new playground equipment for the community. The other grants presented were for the Lowndes County Commission Coroner Equipment Purchase and the Lowndes County Board of Education – Central Elementary School Indoor Security Cameras.

Our second stop was to the Butler County Commission, where we were able to hear from several of the grant representatives including Greenville High School Band Trailer, Shackleville VFD Roll Up Doors, Butler County EMA Weather Radios with Batteries, and Rose Memorial Library Children’s Section.

The last stop on our tour was to the Town of McKenzie for the McKenzie Volunteer Fire Department Digital Radios and Truck Radios from the 2019 grant season.

We want to thank Senator Malika Sanders-Fortier, State Representative Kelvin Lawrence, and State Representative Chris Sells for making it possible for Mid-South RC&D to provide these grants to our wonderful communities!
