To the Editor:

The community of Keizer has proven their support for the community build project when they came out in big numbers to see the unveil of the play structure last Thursday, Nov. 14.

I would like to thank the staff and students at our elementary schools for allowing us to come into their schools to get the ideas to design our structure.

I would also like to thank our committee: co-chair Richard Walsh, Ron Freeman, Janet Carlson, Will Stitt, Jim Taylor, Meredith Coy, Brandon Smith and David Louden, and a special thanks to Evan Christopher, Carolyn Ream and Carol Dorfler. City staff Bill Lawyer and Debbie Lockhart. Without these people our success to this point would not be possible.

Thanks to our sponsors: Keizer Renaissance Inn, Porters Pub, Los Dos Hermanos, Walery’s Pizza, Walsh and Associates, Safeway, American Family Insurance, Big Town Hero and John L Scott Real Estate-Carolyn Ream.

We are far from completing our build but our momentum is strong. If you would like to make a donation please send your donations to Keizer Parks Foundation P.O. Box 20373 Keizer, OR 97307.
