The Table Rock Lake Community Foundation recently awarded a grant of $615 to the Galena Vision of Hope organization.

That grant will be utilized to purchase paint and related materials for the organization’s “Paint the Town” project. The goal of the project is to promote community pride by painting at least five structures within the city of Galena before the end of 2012.

The community organization has partnered with participants in Stone County's Drug Court who will work off part of their community service in the efforts to beautify the city.
