Jenkins Bridge Preservation Foundation officially named
At the March 19 meeting for the Jenkins Bridge, the official name was chosen for the non-profit aiming to save the bridge — the Jenkins Bridge Preservation Foundation.
Any person interested in the preservation or in working with the group is encouraged to attend the meetings. There is also a Facebook site for information.
Nominations for officers and board members were taken to be voted on at the next meeting on April 4 at 6:30 p.m. at Fire Station No. 1 in Jenkins. Nominations are still open.
Progress is being made toward the formation of by-laws and the application for 501c3 status. Contacts have been made for Historical Status for the project.
The first fundraiser was held on March 17 with the Homestead Pickers from Silver Dollar City.
