rlfThe Sully Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) has $30,000 available for financing your business start-up or expansion project. The Sully RLF was established to improve the Sully economy by providing “gap” financing for small and emerging private business enterprise projects that may or may not increase property valuations or employment opportunities.

Any business located in the Jasper County portion of the Lynnville-Sully Community School District is eligible to apply. Refinancing, residential construction, specialized equipment not essential to the operation, and routine maintenance generally cannot be financed. Some possible uses of the Sully RLF are:
 • Acquisition of land, buildings, and equipment,
 • Building renovation, rehabilitation, or equipment installation,
 • Working capital for inventory and direct labor, and
 • Technical assistance for private business enterprises.

Loan amounts are subject to the availability of funds. The minimum loan is $2,000. Interest rates will vary with the prime rate and are set by the Sully RLF Loan Committee. Rates will range from 2-5% and typically will not exceed prime rate by more than 2%. The Sully RLF Loan Committee will determine the loan term, which will depend upon the project being financed.

It was a week packed with activities for the 2014 Lynnville-Sully High School Homecoming held Sept. 29-Oct. 4.

From the spirited class competitions to the community-involved parade to the alumni events, Hawk pride was rampant with the theme "Hunting for a Victory" which played off the BGM Bears as the Friday night football game opponent. Fans braved the chilly low 30s to watch the L-S Hawks football team who lost to BGM, 35-0.
