Visitor center board OKs grants



The Jackson County Visitor Center Board of Directors recently approved a series of promotional and developmental grants to community organizations.

The largest of those grants, $15,000, was given to Melissa Schurman and Matt Nicholson, both with Seymour Skatepark Association, for use in expanding the Schurman-Grubb Memorial Skatepark.

The Fort Vallonia Days’ Joe Jackson Hotel Restoration Committee received a $400 grant for publication of a booklet featuring the history of the hotel, which will be 100 years old in September, and the Vallonia area.
