“Community Meets Match Challenge Again!
In less than a month, the community has once again rallied together and met a match challenge in support of the Crozet PARC (Park Aquatics and Recreation Center). After learning of a Park shortfall in funds due to the Crozet pool re-plastering this past spring, a donor came forth with a $10,000 gift and $10,000 match if the PARC were able to raise $20,000 by year’s end. This match was presented to the community and in less than two weeks, gifts large and small came pouring in, exceeding the match challenge! Heidi Sonen, Crozet Park Board member said, “The community has spoken not once, but twice to its commitment to see this facility succeed.” The first community challenge of $200,000 was met in September of 2011. Final plans for this project are progressing with an anticipated construction start date of mid January 2012. Look for updates in the next two weeks on the PARC website.
Crozet PARC will be the first aquatics and recreation center open to the public in Albemarle County.”
Now … let’s get cracking on that Library …
