Aureon Grant to Preserve Local History

Aureon is pleased to announce that an Aureon Charity Grant has been awarded to Hawkins Memorial Library. The funds will be used in support of the library’s ongoing efforts to archive local history. The project includes converting all back issues of The Progress Review to microfilm, and ultimately, making them available online. The grant was presented in conjunction with LPC Connect who sponsored the grant applications. 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 proposal reflects 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.
