It is difficult to go anywhere within Sedgwick County where the Foundation’s effect is not already seen. While assistance to the Medical Center and the new Fire and Rescue Centers may be the most obvious, there are many other changes less apparent, such a paved walk way around DePoorter Lake, an outdoor sign for JHS, bullet proof vests for our Deputies and dummies for C.P.R. training. Grants have been awarded for summer recreation, the Golf Course, the Pony Express, 4-H, and for school landscaping and heating systems. The Hippodrome has received funds to help with remodeling. All three towns have received grants for various projects ranging from water upgrades, to maintenance and law enforcement. Even the Julesburg water tower is dressed up a bit. Fire districts countywide have benefited. Even subtler are the college scholarships awarded annually. Elder Care has received funding, as has 911, and Law Enforcement. The County has benefited from internet upgrades, a County Express bus, fair ground improvements, ambulance equipment as well as funding for economic development and historical preservation. The best is yet to come, as the Foundation will continue to fund grants totaling from three to five hundred thousand dollars per year within the County.
