CLACC Receives Grant

Clear Lake Area Community Center Receives Grant

The Clear Lake Area Community Center (CLACC) received a $1000 grant from the Polk-Burnett Electric Cooperative’s Operation Round Up program.  CLACC is one of 13 non-profit entities to receive a grant in January. The money goes toward the purchase and installation of a fire suppression system in CLACC’s commercial kitchen. The system is required to meet certain fire laws. CLACC is grateful for the donation toward this project that totals approximately $6,000. 

The CLACC Grant Committee is actively seeking and writing grant proposals for several other large projects.  Among the projects are upgrading the HVAC system, replacing areas of a roof that is over 30 years old, upgrading the Event Center stage to include lighting and sound systems, an asbestos abatement plan to prevent any potential asbestos exposure, constructing a donation center for the Old School Thrift Shop, resurfacing and expanding the parking lot, and other upgrades to the commercial kitchen.

The building is over 100 years old and continues to have regular maintenance, but eventually certain systems require upgrades, and even replacement. The list above demonstrates that fact.

CLACC is thankful for the continued community support it receives. Monetary donations are tax deductible and always appreciated as is participation in fundraisers such as Cupid’s Carnival that was held on Sunday, February 18 at the Event Center.
