Thanks to a campaign started by the Rotary Club of Sidney and the Kiwanis Club of Sidney, a drive to build an all inclusive community playground at Geib Pavilion in Tawawa Park is underway. Projected completion date of the project is in the fall of 2019. The estimated cost of the project is $160,000, with Rotary and Kiwanis each pledging $10,000 for the project.
Donations for the project are being accepted and anyone who donates more than $500 will have their name included on a recognition rock. Donations to the project are tax deductible. The different levels of donations are bronze, $100-499; silver, $500-999; gold, $1,000-9,999; and platinum, $10,000 and above.
Anyone wishing to donate to the project can send a check made payable to the Community Foundation of Shelby County with “Sidney Inclusive Playground” written in the memo line. Checks can be sent to the foundation at 100 S. Main Ave., Suite 202, Sidney, OH 45365.
