The City of Noblesville received two grants last week from the Legacy Fund to support a display of historic information in City Hall and another to support the work of Noblesville Sister Cities.
The City Hall display will feature information and historical highlights of significant city events that occurred during the tenure of Noblesville’s mayors since 1887.
The second grant will assist Noblesville’s two sister cities: Nova Prata, Brazil, and Cittadella, Italy. The Noblesville Sister Cities Committee will be hosting eight to 10 students between the ages 16-18 as well as chaperones, government officials and business leaders from Italy and Brazil from July 18-31. The organization has partnered with the city to work to raise funds to transport visitors to various events and activities and for supplies. The visitors will be staying in Noblesville residences.
“We are grateful to receive this funding for projects that will help residents as well as visitors from our sister cities learn more about Noblesville and its history,” said Mayor John Ditslear.
The Legacy Fund, an affiliate of the Central Indiana Community Foundation, has served residents throughout Hamilton County since 1991. The fund is committed to bringing neighbors together to address community issues and priorities, to connect donors with their charitable interests and passions, and to make the act of giving a more meaningful and effective gesture for donors.
