The Post Rock Extension District recently held a 'Dining with Diabetes' program. This program helps individuals learn different strategies to manage their diabetes, whether is it through carbohydrate counting, portion control or meal planning. Those who participate have the opportunity to sample healthy foods made through the concepts that are taught. The community foundation awarded a grant to assist in the cost to hold this program. "With the help of partnerships through K-State Research and Extension, the Lincoln County Health Department and the Post Rock Community Foundation, we gave these individuals the tools they needed to boost their confidence and self-efficacy to better self-manage their diabetes through diet and exercise," said grantee Ashley Svaty.
Sylvan Historical Society
Thanks to a grant from the community foundation, the Sylvan Grove Union Pacific Railroad Depot was able to complete their landscaping project. This project included fencing, sidewalks, landscape items, and the installation of a section of authentic rail track.
USD 298 Lincoln
The grant funding from the community foundation allowed USD 298 Lincoln to provide rubber flooring for the weight room to prevent damage to the current concrete floor.
"Without this grant, this project would not have been possible. We are excited to reopen our facilities to the public so that they can share our improvements!"
