BOND COUNTY HUMANE SOCIETY PLANS NEW BUILDING

 

The Bond County Humane Society has announced plans for construction of a new building in Greenville. Rachel Hunsdorfer, from the Bond County Humane Society, recently gave WGEL an update. She said they purchased a little over two acres on South Elm Street and have contracted with a company called Hound Quarters to design the new facility. Hound Quarters has a reputation of designing and building animal shelters, grooming and kennel boarding facilities.  Currently, the building is designed to cover over 5500 square feet. Hunsdorfer added that now they will review and modify the floor plans, then create a conceptual design that people can see. After that the society will hold fundraisers to help defray some of the costs.

 

KASKASKIA COLLEGE TO HOUSE AN INTERNATIONAL TRADE CENTER

 

Kaskaskia College was chosen to house an International Trade Center (ITC).  The ITC can develop an International Business Certificate Program, assist companies with exports to possibly increase sales, provide import/export seminars, provide companies with international financing opportunities and participate with the World Trade Center and State of Illinois Export programs in foreign trade missions to Asia, Mexico, etc. Southern Illinois companies benefit from these programs by increasing export sales and creating new jobs to help local economies. The International Trade Center will be located at the KC Workforce Center in downtown Centralia.
