On September 13th, The Vandalia-Butler Foundation awarded the 2018 Small Business Opportunity Grant to Kristi Holland and Holly Coob, the owners of Ashbury Screen Printing. Three years ago, Julia Gearhart established the Vandalia-Butler Foundation Small Business Opportunity Fund in memory of her husband, Ron Gearhart, who passed away in 2017. This fund was established for the purpose of financially assisting small businesses in the City of Vandalia and Butler Township through reimbursement of expenses incurred with specific projects.
