The Water Tower Advisory Council’s 2022 fundraising campaign is celebrating after reaching the halfway point in its goal of raising $100,000 for the Water Tower Recreation Center.
Goals for this project are to improve the area around the historic Water Tower by repairing paths, improving lighting, and refurbishing the World War II Memorial. A historic marker to display facts about the tower’s fascinating history is also planned for the park. In addition to making the area more beautiful, improvements will also make the park more safe and secure.
Many in the Chestnut Hill community have made generous contributions toward making these improvements possible and the Water Tower Advisory Council is very grateful for their support.
Bowman Properties has donated $10,000, the Chestnut Hill Community Fund has awarded the project a $5000 grant, and the Raynier Institute and Foundation has contributed $10,000.
Businesses in the community including Bird in Hand Consignment Shop and numerous others have made donations or provided items from their shops for events and raffles. Many families who use the center now or have fond memories from the past have also made donations.
Because of a generous grant from Weavers Way Co-op, the grounds around the Water Tower Recreation Center are also looking a lot lovelier. With funds from this grant, the Water Tower Advisory Council was able to purchase plantings and mulch. Volunteers then weeded the gardens, spread the mulch, and will be responsible for watering and upkeep.
The Water Tower Recreation Center is open to everyone and is home to sports programs, camps, and educational opportunities every day and during every season of the year. You can be a part of preserving this treasure of the Chestnut Hill community. Please consider including the recreation center in your charitable giving. Donations can be made at the Water Tower Advisory website at wtrec.org.
