Community Fund http://www.cynthianademocrat.com/content/support-harrison-co-community-fund <p> To the editor:</p> <p> I am the chairperson of the Harrison County Cancer Coalition and I am writing to encourage support of the Harrison County Community Fund.<br /> For the past four years, the Harrison County Community Fund has been the primary funding source for the local cancer coalition.
