Lapel - Herschel Hinkle said the Madison County Community Foundation turned the tables on a Lapel group of volunteers that has been giving to the town since 1988.
“At our last meeting, we received $1,000 from the Foundation,” Hinkle said. “We didn’t have to apply for it — we were just told the Foundation wanted to give about 20 of the grants to non-profits to benefit the communities. Kirsta Lollar is on the Foundation and had become interested in the Lapel Community Association. She suggested we get one of the grants.”
