The Park is in full bloom!

Once again we extend a very special thank you to Jeff Gibson and his crew

When you can't be at the Memorial Park,
please celebrate with us, virtually.

Fund Raising Drive

Our drive to raise the additional funds to achieve our ultimate goal of full restoration and beautification of Kemper Memorial Park is currently underway. We estimate that it will cost approximately $100,000 to accomplish everything we hope to do. While it would be wonderful to receive the entire amount from one magnanimous donor, we would actually prefer numerous donations in much smaller amounts. So, we are attempting to raise $100,000 through five thousand donations of $20 each. More donations will mean that more people care. That is what we hope to see, and that is ultimately what will best ensure Kemper Memorial Park’s longevity. Please consider joining us in our effort to help make Kemper Memorial Park everything it deserves to be.
