Thayer County Did Not Receive Grant

Disappointing news just arrived for the city of Hebron and Thayer County. The Hebron-Thayer County Edition of The Fairbury Journal-News learned late last week, that Thayer County did not receive the $10,000 Nebraska Tourism grant for which they recently applied, to showcase tourism attractions in the county on the national Altitude TV Network.

They received so many applications totaling several thousand dollars, and it was just too competitive now, said Jeremy Voss, Executive Director of Thayer County Economic Development Alliance, known as TCEDA.
