GACF Grants $23,000 to Girard Area Nonprofits in 2016

We had a fantastic grant reception last night!

Our hearts are full of happiness for the GACF grant award winners, and we are very thankful to everyone who applied. Special thanks to Dalton’s Back 9 for catering our delicious meal, and to Angels Among Us for serving and greeting all our guests. Just a very special evening all around.
