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.

Dune Buggy Raffle

We will be drawing the winner on October, 8th, 6PM @ the Springville Community Park during the Spring Creek Tractor Pulls / Show. $20 per ticket and tickets are limited.

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.
