Fundraising continues

Bank offers matching grant opportunity for entrance sign 

ENTERPRISE — Fundraising for a new entry sign to Enterprise designed to welcome visitors, show people traveling through the Wallowa Valley the vitality of the community and to strengthen the City of Enterprise’s identity, continues this summer with a Community Bank matching grant.

The bank offered to match 50 cents on each dollar donated with up to a maximum donation of $2,000. 

So far, Greater Enterprise Main Streets has collected $3,200 in donations from community members through this campaign and needs another $800 to max out the matching donation from Community Bank.

Total funding committed to the project to date will cover approximately half of the estimated cost to complete the sign. 

The matching grant continues through Saturday.

The sign will be 24 feet long and 9 feet tall. When completed, it will be located along Highway 82 at the top of the hill at the western entrance to Enterprise. An image of the town with the Wallowa Mountains in the background will be carved and painted on a large wooden plank. 

The sign will be supported by columns of Bowlby stone, consistent with many of the early buildings in Enterprise.

Its construction is from products that reflect Enterprise: stone to represent its foundation and history; wood to represent the importance of the natural resource economies of timber, farming, ranching and outdoor recreation; and crafted metal elements to represent the many other skilled professionals and diverse businesses that make Enterprise the town it is today.

For more information, contact Mary Swanson, chair of Greater Enterprise Main Streets, at 541-426-3351 or send donations to P.O. Box 91, Enterprise, OR 97828.
