Fund raiser was disappointing

Letter to the Editor


First, I would like to thank all the volunteers and businesses who helped with the Electric City “Pig For the Park” fund raiser held this past Saturday at Electric City.

This year’s support and attendance was down considerably from last year and was a great disappointment to the many volunteers who worked so hard putting on this event. Electric City has been working hard to get a safe, clean, fenced, grassy area for the young in Electric City to play in the community. This fund raiser was a part of this effort.

These parks are not funded by the Hotel/Motel taxes, so some of the Electric City volunteers, such as myself, have been trying to do fund raisers to help with some of the expenses so that the project can move forward while we are working on grants and other financial avenues.

This event will probably not be held next year because of the lack of support and interest of the community.

Again, thanks to the few Electric City citizens and people from the Grand Coulee Dam Area that did step up and help with this project.
