The Foundation Gives out the First of Eight Community Action Grants

Things are getting exciting this week! We met with Deb Weberpal and Matt Amundson from Whitewater Parks and Recreation on July 7 for their ribbon-cutting ceremony. We presented them with a check for $2332 to assist in paying for the purchase of new adult fitness equipment that Deb spearheaded. And, of course, we took a short stroll over to Treyton's Field of Dreams to support the ribbon-cutting on their new concession building.

Deb, Director of Seniors in the Park, and a dynamo when it comes to providing community activities, took a trip to Israel a few years ago and saw something spectacular. They had parks filled with free fitness equipment and multigenerational usage of that equipment. What a great way to bring parents together with their kids, attract teenagers to have fun and get fit, and encourage seniors to come out and play! We agreed, and it is so.
