Grant presentation The Vermillion Area Community Foundation presented the Vermillion Area Arts Council with a $1,200 grant at their annual St. Patrick's Day Celebration on March 17. The grant was provided to assist with repairs and renovation of the Washington Street Arts Center. The VAAC has applied for a Deadwood Fund Grant from the South Dakota State Historical Society and the $1,200 will help offset some of the required matching funds. To learn more about the renovation project contact the VAAC at 675-9053.
