The EnviroWatts trust board approved two grants to local charities from their first quarter grant cycle.
Food Finders Food Bank solar lighting
Food Finders Food Bank received $6,481.97 for two solar parking lot lights at the new Greenbush Street pantry parking lot in Lafayette. Solar lights will help reduce the food bank’s energy bills while providing a safer and more accessible environment to people utilizing the pantry and education classes.
“The money we save on electricity can be utilized in our hunger relief programs and purchasing of food so that individuals and families who face hunger will have greater access to the nutritional food they need,” said Amanda Estes, grants coordinator for Food Finders Food Bank.
The lights are part of a new parking lot at the Food Resource and Education Center (FREC) located at 1204 N Greenbush Street in Lafayette. An additional grant from North Central Health Services will cover the installation of the solar lights.
The Food Resource and Education Center helps individuals learn how to prepare the food that is gown in Food Finders’ garden and distributed in our pantry. More information is available at food-finders.org.
Last month, we shared that construction was underway to bring fiber internet to over 2,200 homes in the Battle Ground area. Many residents in that area have expressed their elation for the service. It’s very rewarding to hear how enthusiastic they are for better internet service.
Call it a
adaptation of the
if you must, but I’m
not a split-yourburger
kind of guy.
While I certainly
fared well in the hunter-gatherer days of
finding your own food, I can keep a firm,
two-handed grip on a substantially sized,
sometimes-slippery burger — often with a
minimal amount of drip or slop.

The Arbor Day Foundation has named

It’s anyone’s guess at
press time how lionlike
March has been
so far. But here’s
hoping we’re close to
a place of shirtsleeve
patio dining with
for sitting back and savoring spring.
When we announced
our fiber service last
year, our products
included the “triple
play” of internet,
voice and video. The
decision to offer all
three was based on
your feedback that
you were interested in all three services
from Tipmont. More recent feedback
from you combined with nationwide
trends have given us reason to switch our
focus from traditional video to a variety of
video options that can maximize your new
high-speed internet connection.
As an electric cooperative, Tipmont is guided by a board of directors elected by our membership to represent their best interests when making important decisions. Being a member of this board is an incredibly important position in our community. The board’s decisions impact issues such as service rates, rights of way and work plans. This position holds significant responsibility and requires individuals who understand their community’s needs and serve the cooperative members’ best interest.
