gathering place to fill the void. So – Join Us! We will have beverages, cards, cribbage and more. Bring a
snack if you wish or a game you want to play. FMI call Donna Nash @ 207-341-0820.

More Great News in Grants

posted Aug 13, 2018, 2:51 PM by Irelann Kerry Anderson

The Davis Family Foundation awarded us a grant of $18,200 in late June for
our Exterior Repairs Project. This grant will fund the rebuilding of the Hall’s four chimneys and
repair/painting of the East and West sides of the building. Both projects sorely need to be done and the
ECCC Board is deeply greatful to receive this grant that will help us keep working to preserve Comins
Hall and keep it a safe and active gathering place for the surrounding communities. Thank You Davis
Family Foundation!!! (And, thank you to our grant writing committee.)

Grant Announcement

posted Jan 14, 2018, 4:30 PM by Irelann Kerry Anderson

Exciting News! We are honored to announce that the Morton Kelly Charitable
Foundation has awarded a grant of $10,000 to the Eddington Clifton Civic
Center!

This grant will be used to help us with our next Hall project: Resetting the
foundation blocks on which Comins Hall rests and to do necessary grading of the
parking lot to ensure that the re set blocks rest securely for years to come.
We are grateful that Morton Kelly felt our project deserves their support. It puts
us on the road to move forward.

We will still need to do more fundraising to cover all the projected costs of this
project. For that we will need your support. Keep checking our website and
Facebook page to find out what fundraisers we have planned for 2018!
