Wahnetta Hall Trust applications due
Applications are now being accepted for the Wahnetta Hall Trust Fund. Established in 1995, the Trust provisions require the City of Merced use funds to establish and maintain a mini-train system and/or a band concert program in Applegate Park.
The Merced City Council annually disburses these funds to organizations that meet eligibility criteria and can perform the services as described in the Trust. This year there is $1,561 available. Past recipients have included the Kiwanis Club of Greater Merced for the mini-train operation, as well as the Merced County Regional Arts Council, Merced Symphony Association, and Merced Community Band for band concerts at the Merced Open Air Theater in Applegate Park.
The application deadline is Tues., April 16. Non-profit organizations interested in applying for funding should mail their letters of request to Jennifer Arellano, Recreation Supervisor, Parks and Community Services Department, 678 W. 18th Street, Merced, CA 95340. Please call 209-385-6854, or email arellanoj@cityofmerced,org for additional information on eligibility criteria and application requirements.
