The Board of Trustees of the Andersons Fund Supporting Organization of the Toledo Community Foundation has approved a grant to 4-H Camp Palmer in the amount of $10,000. These funds will be used to support the replacement of a new swimming pool at camp.
The Andersons Fund Supporting Organization grant will be used to fund final design and to secure the Ohio Department Health permits. Also, the grant will encourage similar support in the effort to replace a pool that was originally built in 1957. At a May 15 board meeting, the 4-H Camp Palmer Board decided to choose a design build process and voted to hire The Patterson Company as the builder along with consultant Kurt Carmen.
“This grant award is a great boost toward the fund raising efforts toward this project. We are extremely grateful to Toledo Community Foundation’s Andersons Fund Supporting Organization,” said Bill Goodson, Executive Director of 4-H Camp Palmer.
