City of Toledo Park Advisory Board
Awarded Rural Community Grant
from Northwest Farm Credit Services
SPOKANE, Wash. (Sept. 18, 2017) – Northwest Farm Credit Services is proud to award City of Toledo Park Advisory Board in Toledo, Washington, a $1,000 Northwest FCS Rural Community Grant.
“The City of Toledo appreciates the grant from Northwest Farm Credit Services,” said Michelle Whitten, City Clerk/Treasurer. “It will go toward installation of an RV dump station at the City Park and campground, which has been on our list of much needed infrastructure projects for many years. Although the project may not seem glamorous, it will be greatly received by our community and those who visit.”

TES PTO’s Brooke posted: Although the rain is here and the temperatures are cooling, there is an abundance of food in the kid's garden. Many crops were planted for Fall and Winter harvest.
The weeds are thriving too! If you swing by for food, feel free to spend some time pulling weeds. It will make a huge difference for next season.
