Shawmut Receives Community Vitality Grant from Triangle Communications
Community members recently gathered to celebrate a $1000 Community Vitality Grant award by Triangle Communications to assist with improvements to the local historic school gymnasium.
A new nonprofit entity known as the Shawmut Community Center, Inc. officially took ownership of the gym on July 1, 2017. With an organizational purpose to promote and encourage the general welfare of the community of Shawmut, they hope to aid and encourage community service, spirit and social exchange among the residents of the community, and to preserve and maintain the gymnasium building and facilities for the use and benefit of the residents of the community. To date the Shawmut Community Center has hosted community card parties, wedding receptions and family reunions.
