Next Wednesday the Roseburg Morning Rotary Club will make a check presentation to the City of Roseburg Parks and Recreation Department.
The Morning Rotary recently completed a very successful community fundraising campaign to help fund the construction of the future playground and splashpad that is scheduled to be built in Roseburg’s Fir Grove Park.
The $625,000 project has already received a $305,000 grant from the State of Oregon Parks Department with the City of Roseburg adding $175,000 to the effort.
The check presentation is open to the public and will be held at Fir Grove Park, near the soccer office and concession stand next Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. The event is being held to acknowledge and celebrate the culmination of the Rotary’s community fundraising campaign. The presentation will begin at 12:30 p.m.
