Jackson Township receives grant for film

Staff report

JACKSON CENTER — The Jackson Township Trustees recently announced that Jackson Township is the recipient of a grant from the Community Foundation of Shelby County in the amount of $1,000.

The purpose of the grant is to assist with the financial support of the production of a Community Video Project being produced jointly by the Jackson Center Schools, Village of Jackson Center, and the Jackson Center Greater Area Growth Association. The video is currently in the process of production, with a scheduled completion date of February 2017.

The video is being produced by Ondo Media, the same filmmaker who produced the film about Botkins Local School, and a project for the Gateway Arts Council.

The video will highlight the heritage of the Jackson Center Schools and the history of Jackson Center, as well as promote the economic development of the Jackson Township area, showcasing the strong industrial base. The video will highlight the local hometown values in our community showing local leadership, family values, and why so many neighboring residents choose to come into the Jackson Center area to work.

The Trustees would like to thank the Community Foundation of Shelby County for their support of this local project to promote the Jackson Township/Jackson Center area of northeastern Shelby County.
