The Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties, Inc. has awarded a grant totaling $11,500 to the Town of Webb Community Health and Wellness Fund. The grant was submitted with the assistance of CAP-21’s community grant writing program. This grant will accomplish two objectives: conduct a comprehensive analysis of the region’s social, recreational and wellness needs, particularly among our senior residents; and will do a feasibility study of local site options to establish a community/senior center within the Town of Webb.
Within the next several weeks, The Health and Wellness Fund and CAP-21 will announce the web link for a community-wide, on-line survey that all permanent and seasonal residents are encouraged to participate in. The survey will be administered by Research & Marketing Strategies, Inc. (RMS). RMS, a full-service market research firm located in Baldwinsville has considerable experience in hosting online surveys. The survey is brief and your responses will be anonymous, with the findings being reported in the aggregate. Participation in this survey is crucial to helping identify services and programs important and beneficial to you. The goal is to look at the feasibility of a multi-generational community center that could support organizations such as SHARP, Kinderwood and KYAC.
For those residents without access to the internet or who need assistance to fill out the survey, the Old Forge Library will be available for survey access. For more information regarding this project, contact Mary Brophy-Moore, vice president of the Community Health and Wellness Fund at (315) 369-5177 or CAP-21 at (315) 369-3353.
