JERSEYVILLE — Now that the walking trail at Wock Family Lake is complete, Jerseyville Parks and Recreation Department would like to remind the community of a program to benefit Jerseyville parks.
The department would like to extend an opportunity to residents and visitors to leave a legacy within the city’s park system with the Memorial Bench Program. Donors have the choice of the park and location of the bench. A special personalized 4-inch by 6-inch plaque is centered on the 8-foot bench. Benches are green to complement the park surroundings. The cost is $800 per bench and can be donated in honor or in memory of someone special or utilized to recognize a company or group.
The department would like to concentrate on placing benches along the trail at Wock Family Lake, but Lions Club/Wittman Park and Dolan Park are also location options. These generous donations will help install a timeless structure that will be enjoyed by residents for many years to come.
For information or to learn how to be a donor, contact the department at (618) 498-2222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
