We’re also happy that the Rotary Club has gotten on board and will be working with the Kinsmen on this community endeavour. It is hoped that more will come on and that way we can almost guarantee that all the funds ($175,000) will be secure by this coming summer. The goal is to have the new one in place by then as the 25 year old one is really starting to show it’s age and weather!
How you can Help
Right now the fundraising is at $105,000 so we do have some way to go in a very short time.
People can donate their returnable bottles and cans at the Ladysmith Bottle Depot. Just tell them the funds are for the Transfer Beach Playground.
You can also go into the Ladysmith Credit Union as there is a special account there and donate.
The Ladysmith Kinsmen wish to congratulate Linda Wicklund … who won the “freezer full of meat” raffle the Kinsmen had to raise funds for the new Transfer Beach Playground. The draw was held on Wednesday, December 17th, 2014.
Linda, and her husband Greg, are residents of Ladysmith are residents of Ladysmith.
The Ladysmith Kinsmen also wish to thank the folks at Ladysmith Home Hardware for supplying the freezer and to Paul Bouma, of Bouma Meats in Ladysmith, for supplying the meat. The raffle raised over $2,200 to go towards the Transfer Beach Playground project.
The members of the Kinsmen, as well as their partners the Rotary Club, hope to have the necessary $175,000 raised by June 30th, 2015.
