Dallas County Conservation Board Receives Donations

Minburn Communications and Aureon each presented the Dallas County Conservation Board (DCCB) with a $500 check. DCCB Executive Director Mike Wallace accepted the $1,000 total donation at Minburn Communications new corporate office in Woodward on Monday, March 5. This funding came from the Aureon Charity Grant and Minburn Communications Community Impact programs.

Dallas County Conservation Board will apply the contributions towards the development of a new recreational trail to connect the High Trestle Trail and the Raccoon River Valley Trail, the state of Iowa’s most prominent multi-use trails. The expansion is a 9-mile stretch of former railroad right-of-way from Woodward, through Bouton to Perry, Iowa. Construction of the connector trail is slated for completion in 2020.

Minburn Communications’ Community Impact program started in 2018 as part of the organizations commitment to make an impact on the communities it serves. The company contributes to community enrichment and economic development through corporate giving, a USDA Revolving Loan Fund, sponsorships and employee volunteerism.

The Aureon Charity Grant program was created in 1993 to increase service and support to rural independent telecommunication companies and the communities they serve. Aureon Charity Grants are awarded on a quarterly basis. Community organizations who receive service from local telecommunication companies like Minburn Communications are encouraged to participate. Upon reviewing an abundance of applications, the Aureon Charity Grant Committee delegated funds to projects committed to the betterment of local Iowa communities.

“Minburn Communications appreciates the efforts of the Dallas County Conservation Board. Their dedication to advancing our community trails greatly impacts us all,” stated Debra Lucht, CEO/General Manager of Minburn Communications. “We are excited to see this new trail pass along our new corporate office. We also are proud to partner with Aureon to make this grant possible.”

“Aureon is delighted to support nonprofit organizations that enhance the quality of life for Iowans,” said Ron Keller, CEO, Aureon. “We look forward to aiding future community-improvement projects and extend our best wishes to your community.”
