Two local banks, Webster Five Cents Savings Bank through its foundation, and Webster First Federal Credit Union, have made generous sponsorship donations to the opening celebration of French River Park to be held August 20 from 11 am to 4 pm.
The park is coming along nicely, with seeding being completed. Still left to do: plantings, lighting, furniture. You can follow the progress in a slide show.
The park is now represented by its own logo, donated by Ryan Wade.
French River Park Opening Day will feature music by the Yankee Dogs and the Pulaski Brass Band, balloon twisting by Bella the Clown, a duck race (river flow permitting), moonwalk, children's activities by the Webster-Dudley Boys and Girls Club, informational displays by the USACE, Turtle Rescue League, and The Last Green Valley, and food vendors.
