In addition to volunteer time, the friends
hosted three successful fundraising events, which included
a golf outing in May, a flea market in September, and a
wine tasting event in October.
Fundraising events yielded a combined
total of $ 8,735.
The Friends also sponsored a Spring and
Fall Park Cleanup Day and launched a solar lighting project
for the illumination of Corrigan Drive by gathering sponsors.
This summer, the Friends plan to rebuild
the fitness trail along McConkey Road.

the Friends twice to discuss improvements to South Park,
specifically to the South Park Fairgrounds Oval Project.
