Fundraising Challenge – May 24 through June 30, 2018. A very exciting opportunity is available to the Brasstown community and friends of the Brasstown Community Civic Center. Thanks to an anonymous donor, from now till the end of June, every $1 donated to the Community Center for the completion of the new building will be matched up to $2000.
This is a fantastic opportunity for us to finally complete our little schoolhouse.
