Grant Writing Workshop in Parsons, June 4 at Wall Family Center

In partnership with the K-State Wildcat Extension District, the Parsons Area Community Foundation is planning a Grant Writing Workshop on Tuesday, June 4 from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at the Wall Family Center in Parsons. Nancy Daniels, Community Vitality Specialist for K-State Research and Extension, has presented this workshop throughout Kansas and will share her knowledge of funding opportunities and grant writing elements. Another important benefit of this workshop will be to network with others interested in finding grants to share ideas for community projects. For more information and to register, please contact our Extension office by email to or by calling 620-724-8233. Your $10 registration includes lunch and must be received by May 28.

Labette County Fair

Over the past eight years the Labette County Fair has received a total of $55,000 in grants from PACF. These were used to help enlarge the arena, pour concrete pads, and add additional bleachers. This year their grant also purchased a new sound system. Finally, because of its size and capacity, the arena was chosen for the second year in a row to host the high school rodeo this September.

“We had approximately 2,510 at the demo derby Saturday night of the fair. It is the largest night we have ever had in history and it is because of the wonderful support of the PACF over the past few years.” -Rod Landrum
