We wanted to share an update from the friends of the Rudy Rozsypalek Memorial Park, after their fundraiser gathering on Saturday June 7.
Over 300 people showed up! Thanks to their generosity, as well as the many from near and far that were not able to attend, the inaugural fundraiser raised almost $16,000! The weather was perfect and the park was full of people, young and old, enjoying the beautiful scenery, wonderful entertainment and appetizing eats. The funds raised will go a long way to revitalizing this park space and adding some unique features for all to enjoy.
There are so many local businesses, groups and individuals to thank, but none of this would have been possible without the tremendous effort of the Pemberton Lions Club on the BBQ, the Pemberton Valley Supermarket for their generous contribution and the Village of Pemberton office, maintenance and Fire Department staff for their wonderful support towards this event.
Our list of heartfelt thank yous, in no particular order also include…
