Enbridge Energy Donates to Vandalia EMS and Historical Restoration Efforts

In an era of financial challenges at every level of government in Illinois, our efforts have increased to work with the private sector to generate needed dollars for worthy projects. Today, Enbridge Energy, a Canadian company that is expanding its American investment by building a gas pipeline from the Dakotas to the Patoka Station in Marion County, made two donations to the community of Vandalia in the 107th District. The first check presentation was to the Vandalia Historical Society, Inc. for the window restoration project at the Historic Vandalia Statehouse. The water damage to this structure needs to be stopped and repaired or the building will deteriorate and eventually fall in on itself. The Statehouse is the oldest surviving Illinois Capitol building and is a key part of the economic engine of tourism to Vandalia. The second donation was to the Fayette County Emergency Management Services (EMS) program to purchase diving equipment that was stolen.
