Goderich Toy­ota do­nates $10,000 to Re­cre­ation Park Project

The Goderich Signal-Star - - Opinion -

The Goderich Re­cre­ation Park fundrais­ing cam­paign con­tin­ues to exceed ex­pec­ta­tions thanks, in part, to a gen­er­ous $10,000 do­na­tion from Goderich Toy­ota. Es­tab­lished in 1977, Goderich Toy­ota has grown to be­come a premier Toy­ota dealer in Huron County. Orig­i­nally founded by the Strick­land fam­ily, the deal­er­ship was ac­quired by The Hum­berview Group in 2012 and has continued to ex­pand its reach into Goderich and the sur­round­ing area. Gen­eral Man­ager, Pat Barnes, was on hand to present the deal­er­ship’s do­na­tion to members of the Re­cre­ation Park Com­mit­tee.

“It is a rare op­por­tu­nity when a com­mu­nity project comes along that al­lows a com­pany like Goderich Toy­ota to di­rectly im­pact the well­be­ing of our com­mu­nity not only now, but for years to come. The Goderich Recre­ational Park Project is one of those op­por­tu­ni­ties. Goderich Toy­ota and our em­ploy­ees are happy to do our part, in sup­port­ing this com­mit­tee and our com­mu­nity’s in­vest­ment in our lo­cal youth and fam­ily.”

Re­vi­tal­iza­tion Com­mit­tee Chair, Leah Noel, says the com­mit­tee is pleased that the com­mu­nity con­tin­ues to sup­port the fundrais­ing cam­paign.

“We are now a year into fundrais­ing and peo­ple are still excited about sup­port­ing the park. Our lo­cal busi­ness lead­ers have been in­cred­i­ble, and we are thrilled with the suc­cess of the cam­paign.“

Work at the site is well un­der­way: the park’s pav­il­ion has been erected and work at the three ball di­a­monds is near­ing com­ple­tion with the soc­cer pitch, skate park and play­ground next on the agenda.
