WILMINGTON — At the opening ceremonies of this year’s Corn Festival, the Antique Power Club presented City of Wilmington Parks and Recreation with a $5,000 check for the David Williams Memorial Park Completion Project. The funds will be used to build a splash park and concrete skatepark in the David Williams Memorial Park.
This donation moves the project closer to the $450,000 project goal. According to fundraising chairperson Troy Seeger, “This incredibly generous donation moves us to within $40K of the project fund-raising goal. With continued support from the community we are focused on achieving our goal by the end of 2016.”
During the check presentation, Park Director Lori Kersey Williams noted that this donation was a result of the Antique Club investing the fruit of their hard work in the Corn Festival back into the community and will enable the Parks to tap into a matching donation.
