Most of the day was spent at the Saraland Civic Center for a 10:00AM to 3:00PM grant writing seminar sponsored by the American Association Of Grant Professionals.
Since I have participated in providing grant specifications for Chickasaws Safe House, the NEH grant for tourist information and the Port Of Chickasaw 2010 Homeland Security Grant, our Mayor, Byron Pittman asked me to attend. While I attended Grant Training in 2007, you always pick up new, useful information by exposing
your mind to new information.
