      • When the plan is ready, they will present it to the County Commissioners for approval, and to ask for money.
      • Then, they will present it to the clubs for donations and volunteers for building it this spring.
      • This is one of our main projects we wanted to support with our earnings from last year’s fruit sales.  We have donated around $800 so far this year, and have $1200 remaining in our fund.
