    The Adams County Rotary Club is set to receive a $3,000 district grant, which the club will match with an additional $1,500 to sponsor three benches in the Decatur branch of the Adams County Public Library's proposed Storybook Park.
    Bellmont High School's graduating class of 1968 has already raised $5,000 to sponsor the park's other three benches, and continues to raise funds to sponsor lampposts and other items in the park.
    So far, the library has received about $23,000 in pledges for the new park, which library Director Kelly Ehinger says is about halfway to where they want to be before they break ground on the project.
