Thank You to the Owen County Community Foundation!

Well, they've done it again. "THEY" is the Owen County Community Foundation. We like to think of them as OBF ("Our Best Friend").

"THEY" have awarded to Spencer Main Street, Inc.—your local, all-volunteer non-profit organization working to revitalize Spencer's Historic Courthouse Square—a Community Investment Grant that will allow us to complete the purchase of a collection of high-tech hanging baskets that can be watered with a new, manageable water tank and pump just twice a week instead of EVERY DAY.

Spencer Main Street is dedicated to beautifying downtown Spencer by purchasing and maintaining the 28 downtown hanging flower baskets each summer, from May through October. Spencer Main Street is also responsible for establishing and maintaining the three-block stretch of Railroad Gardens that run along the railroad track on Franklin Street. When our members pay their dues or make donations, some of that money goes to support these annual and ongoing expenses. We are so grateful to OCCF for the extra boost to enhance this project!
