Fulton County Chamber of Commerce Establishes Endowment Fund

The Fulton County Chamber of Commerce Fund was created through the FCCF so it can help support the Fulton County Chamber of Commerce forever.

FCCF Grant Supports Recovery Program

Intrepid Phoenix founder Larry Smith gives a whole new meaning to “take the money and run!”

He founded Intrepid Phoenix to provide positive activities and support for individuals in addiction recovery. Program members receive personal training through partnerships with nearby fitness centers. Locally, Intrepid Phoenix partners with Ace Fitness Center in Rochester.

The FCCF provided a grant of $5,000 to help with the program.

Why the red?

The red portion of our Community Foundation flower represents Fulton County as the Round Barn Capital of the World. The first Fulton County round barn was built in the early 1900s. Soon, the area became known for its round barns. One of these barns has since become the headquarters for the Round Barn Golf Club at Mill Creek. Another historical round barn, originally built in 1924, was restored into the Round Barn Museum. Fulton County is proud of its rich history and works to preserve that history through its round barn sites.

“Fulton County is special because of the people who live here. It’s full of people who care about one another and are willing to work together to try to make things happen to improve our community. I love calling this home because of the friendliness and the small-town atmosphere. I also like that we live in a rural setting and can appreciate the natural beauty of our community.”
