Sustaining the Vision
There is a way to sustain community projects and programs in the Springville area, forever. A permanent field of interest fund established through the Lawrence County Community has served local initiatives. Each year, with assistance of a community advisory group comprised of Springville residents, grant recommendations are made in support of local projects. The involvement of this local advisory group is important in identifying the changing and emerging needs of the Springville community.
