A Few Accomplishments
Veterans Memorial

The Trumbull 100 spearheaded the construction of the Trumbull County Vererans' Memorial. Several Trumbull 100 members served on the project's
oversight committee. Various local businesses, community groups and area construction unions spent many volunteer hours and donated in-kind services to complete this project. Nearly $500,000 was raised through the sale of bricks (nearly 3,000), pavers (over 500) and sponsorships to purchase the bronze WWII statue and building materials to complete the project. The memorial was dedicated on November 11, 2008 and stands in doentown Warren to honor all veterans.

June 2010 - Burbank Park

The Burbank Park renovation project was completed with over $140,000 in goods and services contributed from many sources including the Warren Athletic League, Mahoning Valley Scrappers and Trumbull 100. The park is located on the northwest side of Warren. Bill Casey led the charge to return Burbank Park to its original form. He called the park
“a gem” now that renovations are finished. Work on the concession stand and four baseball fields began in 2008 and was finished in June, 2010. Security cameras have been installed and vandalism has been halted. Over 500 children from all over Trumbull County regularly play in the park and a statewide baseball tournament was held in the park.

DOWNTOWN FLOWERS

Trumbull 100, with cooperation from the Youngstown Warren Regional Chamber, have partnered for the last several years to provide beautiful hanging flower baskets in Courthouse Square and the surrounding areas of downtown Warren. The flowers are carefully tended and watered each summer and bring an added ambience to the area, encouraging shopping at downtown merchants.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



August 2010- BUTLER

 

In August 2010, the membership of Trumbull 100 agreed to grant The Butler Institute of American Art-Trumbull in Howland Township, $20,000 towards the construction of an addition to their current building. A tile mural masterpiece, 14 May 1968, produced by renowned French artist Pierre Soulages will be displayed in the new addition. The 14x20 foot mural composed of 294 individually hand crafted tiles was previously displayed at One Oliver Plaza in Pittsburgh. It was painstakingly removed over a ten day period and was reassembled and is now displayed in the glass fronted addition specifically created for the massive piece. This work of art was dedicated in October 2010. Several Trumbull 100 members have formed a committee to collaborate with The Butler to improve art appreciate in Trumbull County.

 

 

KENT

The Trumbull 100 and Kent State University Trumbull Campus have an ongoing collaboration and have established a Grant Center in the university's campus library. An area of the library has dedicated computers open to residents and organizations researching grants.
The campus also offers grant workshops which are currently being underwritten by a grant the City of Warren obtained. Students who qualify, are paired with a campus faculty mentor and a local non-profit organization in need of grant funding. After the grant is submitted, the Trumbull 100 awards a stipend to the faculty mentor and students writing grants. Many submissions have been successful in bringing additional grant monies to local groups. For additional information on the workshops, please call Kent State University Trumbull Campus.
