Huskiettes second at Thurston The Huskiettes placed second at a dance competition held Saturday at Thurston. Stayton finished first. "They did really good," said Coach Kristin Ashcraft. "It was their first competition so they had some jitters and mistakes." The team also received a variety of feedback from the judges and will adjust its routine accordingly, Ashcraft said. Sweet Home's score pre- qualified the team for the second round at state. Teams competing at state must score a minimum of 60 in the first round to qualify for the second night of performances. Sunday, the seniors individually danced at the all- state auditions at Wilsonville High School. Winners are announced in March. Foundation accepting grant apps The Sweet Home Community Foundation began its annual grant cycle on Jan. 15. The goal of the foundation is to provide funding to a wide variety of projects and activities that provide lasting improvements to the community. Grants are given in the following categories: Children and Families, Education, Livability and Arts and Culture. Due to lower than anticipated revenue, this year's grant awards have been reduced to between $250 to $1000, in order to assist as many community projects as possible. Grant application packets are available for download from our vebsite, at www. sweethomecommunityfoundation. org. Completed applications must be returned to the Sweet Home Community Foundation, P.O. Box 24, Sweet Home, OR, 97386, by 5 p.m. on Feb. 29. Grant applicants must be a 501 (c)3 orotherqualifiedtax-exempt organization or the proposed project must be implemented in affiliation with such an organization. This year, support to the Foundation was provided entirely through local businesses and individuals. Grant award recipients will be announced in March.
