Rep. Danny Crawford of Athens is providing a $2,500 grant to the Friends of the Scout House Committee to go toward exterior renovations.
Thanks to his grant, the committee has now raised $26,315.
Committee members are working on a grant proposal to Dekko Foundation, and the community support, both financial and with in-kind work, gives us credibility and helps our chances.
"We appreciate Rep. Crawford recognizing the impact this project will have on Athens," said Committee Chairwoman Holly Hollman. "We are preserving an iconic site and turning an empty building into a music venue, a place that is once again a vital contributing part of our community.
