The Charitable Trust, brainchild of Hogansville businessman John Jones, is a non-profit corporation formed to help the City of Hogansville pursue federal and state grants. Chaired by Hogansville CiW Councilman Jack Leidner, board members include Joan DeMarrais, Mack Reynolds and Jones. "But that's just the tip of the iceberg," said Leidner.

They've also put in for a Community Development Block Grant for another $350,000 for street paving and sidewalks outside of Hogansville's main business district. Results of that application are due in September. for it, most can be done with in kind work performed by the city, but we might need as much as $20,000 in cash. Jones and other developers have agreed to cover up to half of that if the festival and the trust can't, but even so, every dollar we can make on the festival the city needs. And we're not getting the vol- unteers for the festival that we've got to have." "Bottom line," agreed Leidner, "is that this year's festival is probably the most Dan-Ric Homes "'Building For Your Future" www.danric.com infog danric.com Funded by the --- -,r--- ' --' Hummingbird Festival and Dinner, the Trust's tax status makes donations to those events deductible.

The Trust is on the hook for almost $11,000 in addi- tional matching funds for the rest of the front of City Hall and we need more cash to help the city with the $350,000 streetscape project.
