Hancock Town Pride committee to discuss new town green

HANCOCK — The Hancock Town Pride Committee recently received a $2,500 grant from the Vermont Community Foundation’s Small and Inspiring grant program. The grant will help further the Hancock Town Pride’s mission of fostering community spirit, beautifying the town and offering events and activities by creating the Hancock town green. The green will be located on Route 100 in front of the Hancock Fire Station.
“We’re very excited about receiving this grant from the Vermont Community Foundation because it allows us to buy the sugar maple trees we are planting between Route 100 and the town green,” Jill Jesso-White, president of Hancock Town Pride, said. “This is phase one of our town green initiative and will let our community know that the project is under way.”
Through its Small and Inspiring grants program, the Vermont Community Foundation hopes to help foster the spark and hope that keeps Vermonters healthy and happy by finding and supporting projects in every town in Vermont where a small grant can make a big difference.
