The CCHS Band Boosters group was one of the grant recipients from the Old Settlers Association this year. This grant will assist in the purchase of a new PA system. We are so happy to have the ability to give back to this wonderful community. Pictured are Stacey Dumbacher, Secretary of the CCHS Band Boosters and Jeff Walker, President of the OSD Association.



The Old Settlers Association has created a grant application form for Columbia City charitable organizations and projects to utilize in making their requests to the Association next summer. Causes that will make a positive impact on the local community are eligible – specifically endeavors that support Arts & Culture, Civic Affairs, Community Development, Education, Health, Recreation and Welfare.
