Innospec donation will help Nazareth residents with upcoming trip

ROCKWELL — Innospec Inc. helped make a dream come closer to reality earlier this month with a $500 donation toward an educational trip to Washington, D.C., that a group of Nazareth Child & Family Connection residents will be making.
During the fun and educational three-day trip in early August, the 19 Nazareth residents will explore our nation’s capital, visiting historic sites, museums and other landmarks.
Additional funding is still need to underwrite the trip and may be made by visiting:
Founded in 1906, Nazareth Child & Family Connection provides residential services for children and a foster care program, and has outpatient facilities in Salisbury, Lexington and Albemarle serving individuals with mental health, substance abuse, developmental disabilities, as well as behavioral health needs.

The Rowan Arts Council deadline


The Rowan Arts Council announces August 16, 2019 as the deadline for the 2019-2020 Grassroots Grants applications.  Since 1977, the North Carolina Arts Council’s Grassroots Arts Program has provided North Carolina citizens access to quality arts experiences. Using a per capita based formula, the program provides funding for the arts in all 100 counties of the state through partnerships with local arts councils. The Rowan Arts Council serves as North Carolina Arts Council’s partner in awarding subgrants to local organizations for arts programs in Rowan County.

Applications are available for non-profit organizations whose purpose is to promote and develop diverse cultural arts programming in Rowan County. Funding priority is given to qualified arts organizations, arts in education programs conducted by qualified artists, and other community organizations that provide arts programs in the county. Grassroots funds are not generally awarded to arts organizations that receive funding through the North Carolina Arts Council’s General Support Program.

Projects must occur between July 1, 2019 and May 15, 2020.

Application forms and grant guidelines are available on the Rowan Arts Council website at

The Rowan Arts Council will also mail applications and guidelines upon request. Applications must be received no later than August 16, 2019 at 5 p.m.

The Rowan Arts Council is available to assist interested applicants in preparing competitive grants. Grant applications are evaluated by a diverse panel of community members and voted on by the Rowan Arts Council Board of Directors. Awards will be announced in late September 2019.
