Plans for our 10th Anniversary Celebration are rapidly evolving as reflected in the content of ourĀ 10th Anniversary Celebration blog.

1. We now have five bands confirmed for Sunday, October 20th.
2. We’ve added a fundraiser for Splash Pad improvements scheduled for Saturday, October 19th. It will be a gourmet tastings event hosted by Monkey Forest Road in their parking lot adjacent to their lovely patio.
3. We’ve lined up Linden Street Brewery to supply us with beer in kegs for our beer/wine “tent”.

The Sunday concert is going to be a major production — but also a bit pricy. We’re going to need some major sponsorships to make this happen and, particularly so since we want the net profits to help fund Splash Pad improvements. If you own (or work for) a business that is a potential sponsor, please take a look at the sponsorship materials posted on the 10th Anniversary page and give me a call.

We could also use additional members for our 10th Anniversary Steering Committee. Recent additions, including newsletter subscriber, Hildegard Dodd have contributed immensely but some additional expertise with bookkeeping, fundraising and event planning would be welcomed. Our next meeting will be this coming Monday, August 5 at my home beginning with an informal meal at 7:00 pm. For directions and “dinner reservations”, please send an email to info@splashpad.org.

While we’re busy planning the celebration, we’re continuing on a parallel track to do what we can to spruce up the park as much as we possibly can. The next volunteer work day will be Sunday, August 18th from 9:00 am to Noon. If you’re not already on our gardening volunteer email list, please send an email to the above address with “Garden Volunteer” on the subject line.
