The 2019 Annual Parks & Recreation Auction held on October 12th raised $25,063 for 2020 programming! These funds will go towards youth, adult, and senior recreation opportunities.
The Dessert Dash was also a success! It had it’s best year yet and raised $2,500, which equates to 10% of the proceeds! Thank you Councilmember Shawna Gasak for coordinating this year after year.
