Forty acres of the Stau- dacher farm have been pur- chased by the newly formed Perkins Foundation for de- velopment by industries and businesses on a non-profit basis, according to Burr Dod- son, president of Perkins Foundation. The tract of land is one-half mile west of Highway 177 on Kipe Street. Dodson said the primary goal at this time is to raise $7,000 from the sale of stock to de- velop this land. "At the present time we have sold about $4,000 in stock. We need to sell another $3,000 worth of stock and are seeking participation from as many lo- cal people as possible," he said. He added the Foundation ap- preciates the support it has al- ready received from the com- munity. "The foundation will have a meeting this Monday evening following the Lion's meeting and some important announcements will be made," Dodson said. "The public Is invited to at- tend." The meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. Monday in the Per- kins Lion's Den.
