“These goals are met by introducing a number of new events, including movie nights, Sports Field Day and a dance for individuals with disabilities, in addition to existing events like the 5K Color Dash and the expansion of the Walk One Week program,” Pettipiece said. The commission went before the city council on Nov. 15 to present and submit a fundraising plan, which is required of any group that seeks to solicit donations exceeding $500. The deeper pocketbook will allow the commission to have a bigger presence at community events next year, as well as organize several events of their own and in partnership with the recreation department. Donations can be made at any number of upcoming events, including the commission’s two movie nights, Sports Field Day, this weekend’s Holiday Tree Lighting, next month’s Celebration of Light, Lunar New Year, St. Paddy’s Day and Blossom Festival.
