QUINCY — The Community Foundation office and Quincy Service League conducted a check presentation on May 16 awarding the annual Amelia E. Bauner Grant award winners.

Community organizations annually apply for grant funds that are endowed to Quincy Service League to award to local organization’s projects. Local organizations have received program funds from the legacy established by Amelia E. Bauner to the Community Foundation since 2009.

This year’s grant recipients were:

  • $6,143 awarded to Quincy Art Center for the outdoor interactive art easels at Lorenzo Bull Park.
  • $10,000 awarded to Quincy Public Library for the mobile library project.

The Quincy Service League enters the 87th year of community service with outreach projects such as RIF (Reading is Fun), Meals on Wheels, Chaddock, Monotones, Student Mentoring, The Family Meal Project and the QSL Shoppe. The annual Holiday Gift Show has enabled Quincy Service League to give an excess of $100,000 in grants and scholarships during the past several years.
