Friends of Lewisburg Parks

THE STORY:

The Friends of Lewisburg Parks is an organization seeking assistance in an improvement project for Rock Creek Park in downtown Lewisburg. Rock Creek Park is the premiere park for the City of Lewisburg as the host location for several major events including the Goats, Music and More Festival and the Rotary Club’s Festival on the Rocks that draws visitors to Lewisburg from all 50 states, 5 countries and more than 70 counties in Tennessee. Rock Creek Park is also home to many smaller events and private affairs, the Farmer’s Market and picnic areas for the people of Lewisburg to enjoy year-round. The greenway begins and ends at Rock Creek Park and is a seminal feature in the health and well-being of Lewisburg’s citizens.
Thanks to a generous donation from Calsonic Kansei North America, a project to add improvements to the park has been developed based on a design created by HFR Design of Brentwood. The new features include but are not limited to – underground utilities at the park and along 1st Avenue to the square, tiered seating in the hillside to create an amphitheater, upgrades to the entertainment stage and more.
CKNA’s initial donation of $50,000 for the project will be matched by the company if the Friends of Lewisburg Parks receives enough donations for local businesses and industries to fund Phase I of the project. For its part, the City of Lewisburg will be seeking three (3) grants to assist in funding some of the upgrades at Rock Creek Park and the renovation of 1st Avenue connecting the park to the square. The Lewisburg Electric System, the Lewisburg Gas Department and the Lewisburg Public Works Department will be providing in-kind services toward the completion of the upgrades as well.
Therefore, the Friends of Lewisburg Parks is requesting you and your company consider a financial donation to the Rock Creek Park project as a show of support for the project and the City of Lewisburg. Donation amounts of $1,000 or more are welcomed or your company may pledge to fund one of the specific upgrades of the project design to receive name recognition associated with the specific improvement.

We hope you will strongly consider this request and help be a part of a wonderful project for the City of Lewisburg as it continues to increase its Quality of Place for all its citizens and for visitors, new prospective residents and businesses.
Thank you for your time and consideration, your contribution to the City’s well-being through your company’s operations in Lewisburg and as a business and community leader for the City of Lewisburg.

Sincerely,

The Friends of Lewisburg Parks
