CALCO NETS $1,000 FOR AIR CONDITIONER PROJECT

WHEATLAND (IOWA) The CALCO (Calamus American Legion Committee Organization) is the recipient of a $500 Iowa Network Services (INS) Charity Grant, plus a $500 matching contribution from F&B Communications, the local telecommunications provider in Calamus.

The grant funds will be used by the CALCO to pay for an air conditioner that replaces an outdated unit on the upper level of the community building.

“The CALCO community building is the only building of its kind in the Calamus area that is used for wedding receptions, anniversaries, luncheons and other community events,” said Ken Laursen, F&B Communications general manager. “We are proud to support a local organization that provides so much value to the community.”

F&B Communications is one of 127 Iowa independent telephone company member-owners of INS, which helps to provide advanced telecommunications and data services across the state. INS established the grant program to bring INS closer to its member companies and customers.

Since the grant program was established in 1992, more than $10,000 has been awarded to organizations in the F&B Communications service area.

The charity grant program is open to non-profit organizations in the F&B Communications service area. Grant applications are available at the business office in Wheatland. Charity grants are awarded on a quarterly basis.

F&B Communications is the premiere local telecommunications provider offering telephone, long distance, digital video, dial-up Internet, high-speed DSL Internet and wireless PCS services to customers in the Bennett, Calamus, Delmar, Lowden and Wheatland exchanges and surrounding areas.
