Capital Campaign Contributors

Capital Campaign

In 2011, the Stan and Lydia Bauman family donated money to build a home for the Merrill City Band in Normal Park. The beautiful gazebo has been used for concerts and many other events ever since. The band wants to give back to a very supportive community by taking the lead in a fund drive to develop the park for even more people to use.

 

A BIG THANK YOU goes out to all Wednesday night concert audience members who bought 50/50 raffle tickets in past years. About $2000 is raised annually from this event!

 

Included in the park plans are a combination facility with restrooms, concession stand, warming house, and storage area. Additional trees, new walkways, benches, historic lighting, bike racks, landscaping, more picnic tables, and permanent trash bins are also on the list. In addition to the fund drive the band is spearheading, the Optimist Club is working to raise funds to put in a small ADA compliant playground.

 

The Capital Campaign’s goal is to raise $599,602, with about 58% of that going to park development. We’ve received contributions to date from 25 corporations, 26 community organizations and foundations, 66 small businesses, and 125 individuals. Donations have been in amounts from $5 up to $25,000.

We thank everyone that has donated to this great project!
