SPRINGVILLE — The Town of Concord Historical Society’s clock tower project has received an initial boost to its fundraising efforts with a corporate sponsorship from the Springville-Griffith Community Education Foundation.
The foundation’s board of directors approved a $5,000 pledge to the clock tower project, as it works toward its $40,000 goal.
“We’re excited to be the first major donor to this project,” said Michael Hannon, president of the SGCEF board of directors. “The tower will be a great addition that brings back a piece of Springville’s history.”
The clock tower will be one part of a larger effort to transform the vacant land at Main and Mechanic Streets into a community park.
The foundation has previously supported projects for the Boys and Girls Club of Springville, Springville Youth Incorporated, the Springville Center for the Arts and Bertrand Chaffee Hospital, in addition to multiple projects for the Springville-Griffith Institute Central School District.
