Groundbreaking set for Herb Monroe Community Park
Friday, May 31, 2013 3:00 PM

To Be Held Directly After Annual John Paulding Days Parade!

When: Thursday, June 6, 8:15 pm

Where: Downtown Paulding at the corner of Jackson and Main streets

Public is Welcome To Attend!

Phase 1 Donors: State Bank & Trust & Paulding Putnam Electric Co-Op will be recognized prior to groundbreaking ceremony.


The Paulding Chamber's Leadership in Action Class of 2013 was able to get enough funding for Phase 1 of the "Herb Monroe Community Park" project. State Bank & Trust and Paulding Putnam Electric Co-Op are funding Phase 1 by donating a combined $30,000. Paulding Chamber Executive Director Erika Willitzer says it's hard to believe we're even at a point where we can hold a groundbreaking, but that's all because of the generosity of local businesses.

This project has three phases and a groundbreaking ceremony will occur at each phase recognizing the donors that made the project possible. If all goes well and enough funds can be raised, the Herb Monroe Community Park will be open to the public in the Fall of 2013. The public is welcome to attend the groundbreaking for the first phase of the project June 6th at 8:15 p.m. The groundbreaking will happen immediately after the 69th Annual John Paulding Days Parade. Everyone is welcome to attend this joyous occasion and donations are still be accepted. Please make checks payable to Friends of the Paulding Chamber, P.O. Box 237, Paulding, Ohio 45879.
