Aureon Grant For DVD Display
Aureon is pleased to announce that an Aureon Charity Grant has been awarded to Hawkins Memorial Library. The funds will be used to purchase an additional DVD storage unit, allowing patrons to more easily browse the thousands of DVDs that are available in the collection. Hawkins Memorial Library is a great alternative to online video services, as there is no charge to borrow up to four DVDs for a loan period of one week. Thanks to the generosity of local patrons who donate their DVDs when they no longer want them, the library has been able to enhance its collection to include many popular movies and television programs suitable for all ages. The grant was presented in conjunction with LPC Connect who sponsored the grant application. Upon reviewing an abundance of applications, the Aureon Charity Grant Committee delegated funds to projects committed to the betterment of local Iowan communities. “Aureon believes in rewarding organizations like Hawkins Memorial Library for their passion and dedication to advancing their neighborhoods. Their grant proposals reflect enthusiasm for serving their community,” said Justyn M Miller, President, Aureon Technology. “Aureon looks forward to aiding future community-improvement projects and extends our best wishes to your community.” Aureon, the new name for Iowa Network Services, created the grant program in 1993 to increase service and support to rural independent telecommunications companies and the communities they serve. The Aureon Charity Grant Program awards grants on a quarterly basis. Over the course of twenty-four years, Aureon has donated over $950,000 to local communities and their surrounding areas.
Geoffrey's Christmas Wish
Local Author Visit Geoffrey’s Christmas Wish book talk and signing by local author RuthAnne Schneck was on Wednesday, June 27, at 6 PM. A wonderful group joined us for a chat with retired Union school teacher Ruth Anne Schneck (Mrs. Rippel) when she shared her newly published book about Geoffrey, a delightful bear on a Christmas adventure. The book is entertaining and educational, and includes activity pages. This was a program for all ages and we had coloring pages from the book for everyone to enjoy beginning at 5:30 PM.
