Mulberry hopes to match funds

Nancy Thoene, secretary and treasurer of Meigs Cooperative Parish, colors in the $23,000 mark. As the sign says, in August 2014, an anonymous donor said that they would match the money raised by the parish to pay off a loan by Nov. 1. The group needs about $7,000 more to reach their goal of $30,000 to be matched. Bob Beegle, future chair of the Parish, said that local churches have been taking up special collections and anyone interested in donating can drop off checks.
