The Troy Kiwanis Club and its associated charitable foundation are proud to announce their 2018 fundraising activities in support of their ongoing Kiwanis Park Project.
The first event in 2018 will be a dinner and auction on Jan. 20 at the Lincoln County Council on Aging (LCCOA) building, 1380 Boone Street in Troy.
The Kiwanis Park Project involves an undeveloped 28-acre tract of land in a residential area just south of the Troy City Cemetery between Main Street and Highway J. Phase 1 of the park project on the far east side of the property includes a covered pavilion/picnic area with rest rooms, parking lot and an all access playground set. The cost of Phase 1 will be approximately $350,000. Kiwanis has already agreed with Hutchinson Recreation Equipment to purchase the all access playground set. The city of Troy has committed to providing the pavilion/picnic area and restrooms. Other financially committed community sponsors include Community Opportunities, Peoples Bank and Trust and the Bank of Old Monroe. In addition, Geeding Construction has agreed to participate in the project with assistance in excavation. Mid Rivers Asphalt will be assisting with paving for roads and the parking lot and Cochran Engineering has agreed to assist with engineering design.
The January fundraising auction and dinner will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a social hour and silent auction. The social hour will be followed by a catered dinner provided by Taormina’s Restaurant. The live auction, conducted by Thornhill Auction, will begin at approximately 8 p.m..
