The Luick Memorial Trust has announced a pledge of $500,000 over three years to help fund the Colts Corner Daycare project. The $500,000 is being matched by $500,000 from the Jacobson Fund for Belmond.
Other funding secured so far includes $470,000 granted previously from the Jacobson Foundation, a $100,000 state Community Catalyst Grant, and a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant from the state, bringing the total to $2.07 million. About $150,000 remains to be raised in the community. The daycare center will be located in the old Ramsay school building.
