IG Cenex provides grant to fire department

Ida Grove, otherwise known as Castletown, USA, was honored as a unique source of pride to the community by Ida Grove Cenex, owned by Sexton Oil and Cenex®, the energy brand of CHS. As part of the honor, the community was awarded a $5,000 grant that will benefit the local fire department.
Ida Grove hosts an eclectic assortment of medieval architecture sprinkled throughout its town. Locals and visitors alike can revel in the midst of dozens of everyday buildings designed as castles: the former newspaper office, a roller-skating rink and the shopping plaza, to name a few.
At a check presentation ceremony Aug. 26, Jay Sexton, owner, and Wendy Mosier, manager at Ida Grove Cenex, awarded the local fire department with a $5,000 grant as part of the honor. The local fire department will use the funds to purchase wild land bunker gear— protective gear for on the fire line.
