Nearly 350 kids get eggs at Chamber event Saturday

There was a steady stream of vehicles at The Versailles State Park on Saturday for the annual Easter Egg Hunt, or in this case, drive thru. With COVID-19 restrictions, the Ripley County Chamber of Commerce decided to just have a drive through, where children could still receive the brightly colored eggs and at least get out. Members of the chamber masked up and gave out the eggs to nearly 350 children.

RCCF launches Women’s Giving Circle

For 17 years, the Ripley County Community Foundation has brought women from all over Ripley County together to share a luncheon with friends, to raise awareness for local issues, and to raise money to create opportunities for our women and children. In 2021, the annual Women in Philanthropy Luncheon will evolve into a Women’s Giving Circle. A Giving Circle will allow the women of Ripley County to expand their collective impact by awarding additional grants, providing more opportunities to identify local gaps, and empowering members to carry out their charitable desires.
