The Imlay City Rotary Club and the Downtown Development Authority are excited to announce Rotary Park, located on First Street, will have a major renovation this Spring! The current equipment will be removed and a brand new surface will be laid and state-of-the-art playground equipment will be built. The gazebo will remain at the park.
The new playground will be perfect for kids ages 2-5 however, the whole family will enjoy the new park and setting. The park will be perfect for a picnic lunch, reading a book and meeting friends.
The Lapeer County Community Foundation, Four County Community Foundation, Imlay City Rotary, DDA and Chamber of Commerce have all committed funds to the project.
In order to complete the vision, we need the community's help. The DDA has organized a fundraising campaign and we have set a goal of $9,200. The Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) will MATCH our fundraising if we meet our goal of $9,200. At the end of the campaign (early March) we will have $18,400 to complete the renovations at Rotary Park.
You can be a part of the excitement! Donations are now being accepted at the DDA office, 150 N. Main Street. Checks should be made payable to the Downtown Development Authority and will not be deposited until our goal of $9,200 is reached. Donations are tax deductible and ALL funds raised will go toward the Rotary Park renovation project.
If we should raise more than $9,200, the surplus funds will go toward picnic tables, benches and fencing.
Information on how you can donate online with a credit card will be available soon.
Please pass the word to your friends and share this information on your social media outlets.
