Support Way Park on Give to the Max Day 2014

Hello Friends!

Ten years ago, Way Park bore the scars of demolition, and a street divided the space. Today, thanks to the City and Friends of Way Park, we enjoy a single lovely expanse with young trees, newly planted rain gardens, an amphitheater, and more recently, three kiosks and colorful murals on the warming house. The park is a hub of activity and a place for neighbors of all ages to connect -- on the playground, while ice skating, and at events such as Pumpkin Fest, Explore the Outdoors Day, and Yoga in the Park.

Friends of Way Park is able to move projects forward and promote community-building activities because of your support. As we look toward the future and turn our attention to upcoming initiatives, like adding creative play elements to the playground and designing a healing garden for the south end, we are asking you to help by joining the many generous donors who are carrying on the legacy of the Way sisters.

November 13 is Give to the Max Day. Every donation made on that day is especially powerful because it offers a chance for Friends of Way Park to win a $1,000 golden ticket (given hourly), medium-sized nonprofit prizes up to $10,000, and one of several super-sized golden tickets of $10,000.

It's easy to give. Just go to the Friends of Way Park page on the GiveMN site on November 13, or go now and pre-schedule your donation. You are also invited to Northfield Gives at the Grand, where you can learn about local non-profits and help one of them win a local Golden Ticket Grant, sponsored by Northfield SHARES.

Thank you for your involvement and support!

The Friends of Way Park Board
