Back in 2012, a major portion of the Benner Memorial Park project was completed. While new playground equipment, basketball, baseball field, walking path and other items are now in place, the park continues to be a “work in progress”. Most recently, a new pavilion and message center was constructed in 2014. As a result of a meeting in late January of 2015, future plans will include the addition of a dog park and a “tot lot” area for younger children to play.
As a result of these and other future plans, the Richlandtown Parks & Recreation Board anticipates the need to raise additional funds to complete all of the proposed elements within the park. The committee is striving to complete all aspects of this project with minimal use of our Borough’s limited financial resources. To help with the funding of this very important project, please consider making a contribution towards the completion of these efforts. Contributors, both individual and corporate, will be recognized for their financial assistance in achieving these efforts.
If you wish to make a contribution to this project, we accept cash, check and for added convenience, we are now offering PayPal payments for Sponsorship! Once payment is received, we will contact you to make arrangements for item sponsorship.
Name recognition within the park begins with a $100 contribution to the fund, where you will be listed on our recognition plaque. Beyond that, individual items will have plaques on them in the name of an individual, family, business, or in memorial for the life of the item (trees that die as a result of transplanting will be replaced).
If you have it in your heart but not your budget to sponsor the park, please feel free to donate at ANY level! We welcome any and all donations towards the fund. One hundred $5 donations is much better than no donations!
**Please note, there are limited “items” within the park. Sponsorship is first come first serve. If the item you choose has been fully sponsored, we will work out arrangements for name placement with you (ie: name larger on recognition plaque level 2,3).
Thanks for your help and continued support!
