Country Partners Co-op gives to Boone Beginnings

Taking part in the donation to Boone Beginnings last week were (l.-r.) Country Partners employees Kevin Kunzman, Jaime Ray and Scott Reinhart, location manager.
Country Partners Cooperative announced last week it is presenting $10,000 to the Boone Beginnings Early Childhood and Family Development Center over the next five years.
The cooperative plans to spread this commitment over the next five years, with the possibility of a yearly matching amount from Land O’Lakes Cooperative during that period.
In the announcement letter for this award, Trista Newcomb, executive administrative assistant for Country Partners, called the project a “great project for Boone County.”
“It is a real asset for so many groups, most importantly the children who will receive great care at this facility,” stated Newcomb. “We look forward to following this project’s success through to its fruition.”
Boone Beginnings project is now in the final structural design phase with Sentinel Building Systems and RDG Architects. Once this work is completed, the architects will finalize the interior drawings, and the complete package will be let for bids.
