The moving date had been set for April 1, 2015, but that had to be pushed back because the council found out that an “Open Public Hearing” had to be held before they could proceed with moving the building. The Open Meeting will be held Saturday, March 28, at 10:00 AM.

Hal Tuttle from the Prairie Arts Council says they have reached $25,000 in their fundraising efforts. He says they sincerely thank the several businesses and area residents for their contributions.

Tuttle says the group still needs financial help in reaching their goal of $40,000. Fifteen thousand dollars is still needed to refurbish the building with basement windows, painting, roof repairs and so forth.

He says he wants to remind potential donors that their financial contribution is fully tax deductible. He says that contributions of any amount can be sent to “Prairie arts Council, P.O. Box 61, Sheldon, IA 51201.
