Northwest Farm Credit Services is proud to award Joliet Community Center a $1,000 Northwest FCS Rural Community Grant.

“Helping people and rural communities that support your business is good business, and the Joliet Community appreciates the support and services provided by Northwest Farm Credit Services and their rural programs,” said Center Board Chair Shad Weber. “The grant will be used toward installation of acoustical panels to manage the noise during events in our meeting room, which provides a local place to gather and is used extensively by Joliet and our neighboring communities. Thank you for your generosity!”
