This painting reflects an idealized view of what small towns used to look like before the Big Box superstores and giant malls. Many Stoddard County residents look back and wish they could recapture those times.
These are the core activities happening in Advance for the month of March. Please feel free add to the ones that we missed - and check back for updates.
Tuesday, March 2....7 p.m. The Advance Community Library held its first meeting since raising over $950 in matching funds for the Bill and Melinda Gates Technology Grant. With $1,000 in regularly-budgeted city funds, they will now be able to receive $5850 from the foundation, with which to purchase 3 new computers. They plan to continue fund-raising for Phase II of the process, which will result in 2 more computers at 50% matching of $2600/$2600.
