In an effort to raise funds for playground equipment for the Franklin City Park, Emily Chatterton, council member over parks and recreation, has put together an event that includes an auction, music and food.
The “Rock the Park” night will be held Oct. 19, in the Red Public Works building, 131 E. 1st S., Franklin at 6:30 p.m.
“Franklin is the first permanent settlement in Idaho and we are ready to make history again with this event. We would love for you to be part of it,” said Chatterton, during the regular meeting of the city council last week.
The committee has a goal of raising $19,000, through this family event, grants and donations. Money will all go towards purchasing playground equipment for the park that will be both fun and safe for children. A small auction will be held, followed with music featuring local talent.
“We are asking people to imagine a place where kids can play, the community can gather and we can all grow together,” said Chatterton. Cost for the event is $20 per immediate family; $5 per person. For more information, contact Chatterton at 208-760-9049 or Jeremy Kimpton 208- 406-2025.
In other actions, council listened to a proposal to improve an existing trailer park located on Main Street and 3rd East. John Packer recently purchased the Pioneer Trailer Court and would like to add curb and gutter, take out bushes and plants to erect a white vinyl fence, front mail boxes similar to that at Legacy Ranch, add picnic tables and a small pavilion.
