Last year at this time the DeWitt County Development Council was in fundraising mode for a grant through the State Farm Bank and the organization is again at it this year.
The opportunity is available for the DCDC to pull in $50-thousand through a $25-thousand matching fund through State Farm Bank and President of the DCDC Board, David Torbert is confident they can raise the money again this year.
One of the biggest things the DCDC has done since their reorganization is their quarterly leader breakfasts at the Clinton Country Club that welcomes a guest speaker to give information about ways to improve businesses in the community. Torbert says they have been well received by those that participate.
The DCDC strives to be a resource to the business community. In the near future, Torbert indicates they are hoping to bring on some part time help to be an available resource and help plan events.
If you're interested in being a part of the DCDC, getting information from them or applying for the part time position they will be opening up soon, visit dcdc-illinois.org or find them on Facebook.
