 PUBLIC MEETING FEBRUARY 17, 6:00pm SENIOR ROOM OF THE CIVIC CENTER

Volunteer Park is a proposed all inclusive park which will provide playground facilities to all people regardless of potential limitations. There will be ramps instead of stairs for those who are in wheelchairs. The playground equipment is made specifically for children in mind who have physical or mental limitations. The picnic tables, parking lot, & pathways have all been carefully considered to allow a more diverse population to use the facility.

The purpose of the Selah Parks Foundation brick fundraiser is to raise matching funds for the development of Volunteer Park. The City of Selah has been awarded a grant of $359,000 which requires matching funds to be able to distribute. The grant parameters have limited the city from contributing more than $150,000 in labor, materials, and financial donations. This leaves us with $241,000 to fundraise in donations, goods, and services to be able to complete such a monumental project in our community.

Purchasing a brick though the Selah Parks Foundation is an incredible way to support this community project. The bricks will be placed at the entrance to the park, adjacent to the parking lot and the playground itself. Donations in excess of the required matching funds will be used exclusively, on this park, for future maintenance and continued development. Purchase your gift bricks at

http://volunteerpark.donationbricks.com/.

 

With your donation, you will be able to personalize a brick. Both upper and lower case characters may be utilized. Brick sizes vary from the standard brick size of 8” by 4” available for $100 to the larger size of 8” by 8” for $250. Each brick will be nutmeg in color (with slight variations), laser inscribed, and epoxy filled in black. You may choose to submit your own company logo to be engraved on an 8×8 brick. This brick will cost $500.

All matching funds will need to be collected by May 1, 2015. All donations after that date will go towards the future maintenance of the park and not directly to its development.
