With a good track record of community fund-raising already in place, Petersburg has good prospects for a successful local community foundation, said Doug Friedli, director of community fund development for eastern Nebraska with the Nebraska Community Foundation.
Friedli spoke after a free barbeque at the Legion Hall Tuesday night, March 30. The event was sponsored by the Petersburg Area Foundation and Petersburg State Bank.
He noted that the Petersburg Foundation has already received one expectancy in the form of a $15,000 life insurance benefit.
