Dubuque Racing Association Grant

The City of Worthington and the residents of our community want to extend a huge "thank you" to the Dubuque Racing Association (DRA) for approving a $3,500 grant for new library bookshelves. If it were not for entities like the DRA providing grant monies to small communities such as ourselves, there would be many projects we wouldn't be able to complete. We again, want to thank you sincerely!
