Courtesy photo PIGEON - Sempra Renewables recently made a $15,000 gift to the Pigeon Community Fund of the Huron County Community Foundation (HCCF). Sempra Renewables, operator of Apple Blossom Wind LLC, through its partnership with HCCF, intends to give back to the Pigeon community annually.

The gift was given to the HCCF Pigeon Community Fund, a fund dedicated to supporting projects in and around the Village of Pigeon. The Fund is advised by a committee of individuals who live or work in Pigeon, including Dwight Gascho, Susan Meyerseick, Chris Wurst, Don Faupel, Jeff Leipprandt and HCCF Board of Trustee Member Michael LePage.

The $15,000 gift was divided three ways: $5,000 was awarded to the Pigeon VFW Hall for continued improvements to the exterior of the building to match the recently remodeled interior; An additional $5,000 contribution was awarded to the Scheurer Path to Fitness, located in the Village Park; and the final $5,000 was invested for the future of Pigeon and was added to the Pigeon Community Fund Endowment at HCCF to be a source of grants for community projects for generations to come.

Andrew Johnson, Wind Facility Manager for Sempra Renewables, said, “Pigeon is a strong community with great residents. We’re proud to be neighbors to a community that has so much to offer, and we’ll continue to find and participate in opportunities to improve the place we call home.”
