Finally, you can vote for something positive! You can vote for the Rushville Public Library and Rush County.
Our library applied for Beacon Credit Union’s “Project Spotlight” which is charitable giving campaign. We hoped to get nominated to win the Project Spotlight so that we could bring the Penguin Program from the Newport Aquarium to the Rushville Public Library during RushFest on September 16th.
Well! We were nominated! Hooray!
Now it’s up to our library friends and supporters to vote for our project to win either 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place in Rushville. First place is $1,000 in funding, second place is $500 in funding, and third place is $250 in funding. Of course, we’d love to win first place, but even second or third would bring the Newport Aquarium Penguin Program to town.
Here’s how you can help. Starting on August 1st, visit the website at (or stop into Beacon Credit Union south of town) and vote for the Rushville Public Library. You can vote once a day using your email address from August 1st through September 30th. So vote every day for us, please!
We know what you’re thinking… but the voting ends AFTER RushFest. That’s okay, we will still bring the Penguin Program to town for RushFest and if we receive the Beacon Credit Union funding we will repay the fund from which we took the fee for the Penguin Program. It all works out.
So don’t forget to vote (every day) and look for a visiting penguin from the Newport Aquarium at the Rushville Public Library on Saturday, September 16th at 1 PM.
