Micro grant to help Mark Prairie schoolhouse
The road to repairing and renovating the Mark Prairie schoolhouse will be a long one, but resources are already gathering to make it happen.
To help the effort, the Mark Prairie Historical Society has been awarded a micro grant from the Clackamas county Cultural Coalition in the amount of $750.
The grant will go toward repair of the Mark Prairie schoolhouse, which was severely damaged by falling trees during the area's ice storm in mid-February.
In March, the historical society announced that it would be working with a pair of Portland firms, ARCIFORM and Froelich Engineers, for the initial phase of the rebuilding and restoration of the schoolhouse.
In mid-March, the Rotary Club of Canby and volunteers from the local area, joined together to move contents out of the damaged Mark Prairie schoolhouse and into storage in preparation for the reconstruction and renovation.
To donate to the repairs and restoration, go to the website at: https://markprairiehistoricalsociety.org/.
