Goderich Kinettes make ma­jor do­na­tion to Goderich Re­cre­ation Park

The Goderich Signal-Star - - NEWS -

The Kinettes of Goderich have do­nated $ 50,000 to sup­port the re­newal of Goderich’s Agri­cul­tural Park.

When asked about the park re­vi­tal­iza­tion, pres­i­dent Patti Lamb says, “sup­port for the Goderich Re­cre­ation Park was a nat­u­ral fit for us and what our group is all about. The Kin motto is ‘ Serv­ing the Com­mu­nity’s Great­est Need’ and this project will not only bene- fit lo­cal youth but peo­ple of all ages from the en­tire sur­round­ing com­mu­nity. It’s ex­cit­ing to be a part of that.”

On a per­sonal note, Lamb adds that she spent a lot of time on the Ag Park ball di­a­monds grow­ing up so she is ex­cited to see them be­ing re­vi­tal­ized.

Lamb, adds that the Goderich Kinettes are all about giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity and fo­cus their ef­forts pri­mar­ily on youth ini­tia­tives but also sup­port var­i­ous adult or­ga­ni­za­tions as well.

Their pref­er­ence is to pro­vide sup­port lo­cally and in the past year the Kinettes have been able to sup­port 26 dif­fer­ent lo­cal groups.

Coun­cil­lor, Trevor Bazinet, says that the Park Re­vi­tal­iza­tion Com­mit­tee is amazed by the com­mu­nity’s con­tin­u­ing sup­port.

“The Kinettes have done and con­tinue to do so much for our com­mu­nity. The very gen­er­ous $ 50,000 do­na­tion once again shows how lucky Goderich i s to have such an amaz­ing group of women vol­un­teer­ing and giv­ing back to our com­mu­nity. We are very pleased that they have been so sup­port­ive of this re­cre­ation in­fra­struc­ture project.”

Work at the park is sched­uled to start shortly with a new, re­vi­tal­ized park open­ing in the spring of 2019.

TheGoderich Kinette Club meets the sec­ond Thurs­day of each month.

Any­one in­ter­ested in be­com­ing a Kinette or look­ing for more in­for­ma­tion can con­tact Patti Lamb at 519524- 1414 or any Goderich Kinette mem­ber.
