Deadline for scoring your T with early registration September 15 for A Walk in the Park fundraiser event. Proceeds benefit Toledo’s Kemp Olson Park improvements and upgrades by providing the matching funds needed to receive the grant.
This year has seen more than double the number of campers, many traveling in groups, attending local events like Cheese Days, and agricultural contract workers. Bringing the City Park up to par with other nearby picnic and camping areas is good for local families as well - all gain from pleasant, well-maintained grounds and accommodations.
September 24 A Walk in the Park celebrates this bit of Nature at the edge of town with an all-ages event featuring a raffle for one of Esther Borte’s noted hand-crafted quilts, titled A Walk In The Park. There will costumes, and the Lions Club will offer a midday BBQ onsite.
Step up and step out. Details and registration available from City Hall. Email Jill Davis, email@example.com, stop in or call (360)864-4564.
