BELMONT — The Belmont County Military Veterans Museum is one of six not-for-profit organizations that benefited from a quarterly round of grants from the South Central Power Company Foundation in July.
The museum was awarded $4,315 to go toward an upgrade of its front entrance ramp to make it compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The museum also houses the Belmont American Legion Post 312 and, according to museum curator Cheryl Skinner, many Legionnaires are in their 80s or 90s and have trouble navigating the ramp that is the current access to the porch and front door. Work has already begun on the project.
“We really appreciate the grant. I’m so glad they came through for us, we’ve been praying about it,” Skinner said. “Every little bit helps, and things are moving along for us. Once this ramp is finished it will be a great addition to the building.”
