Playground Equipment Update

Taken from: The Springville Buzz – Nov. Edition

The Springville Community Heritage Group entered into a Challenge Grant with the Lawrence County Community Foundation in an effort to fund new playground equipment for the Springville Park. The challenge was a 2:1 grant. If we raised $1,000, we would receive $2,000 from the foundation. The deadline for fund-raising was December 1, 2016.

Thanks to the generosity of the foundation, they chose to award us with $3,000 total. Between what was raised through donations and selling pumpkins, we were able to raise approximately $800. Giving us $3,800 to use towards the playground.

Money wasn’t all it took to get this goal accomplished. There were many neighbors who donated their time and talents to the cause. The old equipment was removed and there is now a nice new playground structure for all of the children of Springville to enjoy. There is one more piece on order and playground grade mulch still to come. The project is expected to be completed very soon. If you haven’t been to the park since it received this face-lift, please consider taking your children/grandchildren out to enjoy it while the weather is nice.

Benefit Flea Market and Lunch

October 1, 2016, from 8 am to 4 pm at the Springville Park in Springville, IN 47462.

Picnic in the Park

On July 19th our small town lost a very important historical building. The Old Gym was lost to a fire. The Old Gym was the heartbeat of our small community. There was some insurance, but we are still far from the needed funds required to replace our beloved historical building. In hopes of meeting our goal, the community is hosting a fundraiser.

“Picnic In The Park” will be held July 29th from 6:30 – 8:00pm.
(We also have a rain date set for July 30th same time and place.)

We are having ribeye sandwich platters, you will receive a ribeye sandwich, 2 sides, a dessert and a drink. A child-friendly option will also be available.

You will need to bring a blanket and/or chairs for an old fashion picnic in the park.

Advanced ticket sales start today. You can purchase tickets by calling or texting: Kim Thompson @ 812.583.8483 or Taylor Thompson @ 812.797.5649, also tickets can be purchased at The Springville General Store.


Advanced ticket prices are:

$10 for Adult
$5 for children 10 and under


Tickets will also be available at the event for:
$15 for Adults
$5 for children 10 and under

Spread the word and help us to rebuild something we can be proud of and something our community can share for many years to come.

2013 Silent Auction Donations Needed

Perry Township Volunteer Fire / EMS, Inc.

Federal ID#: 0009412452

April 1, 2013

Dear Friends,

Since 1967 the Perry Township Volunteer Fire / EMS Inc. Department has been providing fire protection and emergency services to Springville and surrounding townships. From exceedingly humble beginning 46 years ago, vast strides have been made in equipment, training, technology and fire prevention. This could have not been accomplished without the funding and donations of our community and friends.

The Perry Township Volunteer Fire / EMS Inc. Department is a non-profit entity which sponsors our annual Springville Heritage Festival. This festival will be June 20, 21 and 22 to raise money to help cover everyday expenses. These expenses include but are not limited to Fire Fighter and EMS training, equipment, insurance, fuel costs, radios and utility bills.

I am organizing the Silent Auction which will be held during the festival. Every year, the Silent Auction is one of the major fund raising events of the festival. I could not do this without the gracious support through donations. Could you please help me raise money and/or donate an item or monetary amount from your business or family for this great cause? Any donation, large or small, would be greatly appreciated.

You may mail your donation to: Tammy Holland

11267 East Main Street

Owensburg, Indiana 47453

Or call and I will pick up your donation: 812-863-4843 or 812-797-9450

We would love for you to visit us during the festival. We have food vendors, children games and are bringing back the bed races and adding a 3 on 3 basketball tournament this year.

Hope to see you there. Happy Spring!!

Tammy M. Holland

2012 Christmas In The Park

__________________________________________________

Christmas In The Park
December 7, 2012
6 – 8 p.m.
Old Springville Gym

Christmas In The Park is a “thank you” to the community for donations and support through-out the year. This is a free event which will host a Chili Cook-off, Santa Claus, Christmas Music, Children’s Games and Karaoke, Hot Chocolate…and the best part: Christmas Trees will be given to a “Chosen Child.”

Springville Elementary School classes will decorate Christmas trees, then they will be used as decorations for our evening. After their bellies are full and children are exhausted – these trees will be donated to a “Chosen Child” and their family!! This is a wonderful Christmas gift and we need your help to make it possible.

We are asking for donations to purchase these trees for all 12 classrooms. We buy local trees and the average cost is $75.00. I collect the money and then buy all 12 trees for a better price.

Can you please help us out this year? You can sponsor a classroom if you want ~ please just notate that on the check. We appreciate all donations. Please call me and I will pick up your donation or please mail it to my home address:
