All five Township supervisors agreed to lend the Veterans Memorial Park committee the $250,000 it needs to complete the facility located on Veterans Highway next to the new municipal Department of Public Works building.
The loan will be paid back by the committee through fundraising at the rate of $50,000 a year for five years.
Members of the local carpenters, operating engineers, electricians and other unions have donated about 1,000 hours of labor to the park, and other volunteers have donated another 1,000. We are really lucky to have such public spirited unions in our area – if you see them working in the park, stop by and say thanks.
This is going to be a beautiful facility and I for one am looking forward to seeing it completed by the end of the year.
