The Foundation met on Saturday, June 1 at the Indiana Interchurch Center. First was a rededication ceremony for the newly restored Gemmer-Hartman Peace Pylon in front of the building. It had been deteriorating since its erection in 1975. A grant from the Gemmer Foundation was sought by the Center a year ago and approved for its restoration. During the ceremony, board members Worth Hartman, David Gemmer, Annabel Hartman, Eric Brotheridge, and friend Walter Horlander spoke. Following that was a luncheon inside, where past grantees and tenants of the Interchurch Center presented their stories and thanks for the Center & the Foundation. Afterward, the Foundation's board members voted on granting money to 15 proposals. The next meeting will be on November 23. Make sure to submit your proposals by October.
