Fundraising heats up
Assistant Parks Superintendent Ed Wood erects a fundraising thermometer Tuesday along South Main Street by O.B. Nelson Park in Fairfield. The thermometer reads more than half full, which means more than $5 million of the $10 million goal has already been raised for the community recreation project pool and gym. Michael Halley, a member of the project’s task force, said he hopes the fundraising will be complete by April 31. He hopes the pool will be ready to open summer 2014 and the indoor recreation center will be open in late 2014.
