Sales expertise sought for park campaign
The Wilmot Gateway Park Fundraising Campaign is seeking volunteers who are interested in helping market and sell bricks and tiles for the new Wilmot Park.
The park, due to be constructed in 1997, is being funded partially by a community fundraising campaign. It will be located along the Sammamish Trail and, along with being a permanent addition to the community, will be a recreational attraction for surrounding areas and the entire region.
"The campaign got off to a rousing start at the Fourth of July fireworks show and at the Columbia Winery reception," said John Hughes, campaign marketing coordinator.
Wilmot Gateway Park has received pledges from Columbia Winery, Molbak's, Woodinville Garden Club, Woodinville Rotary, and many individuals and small businesses in the area.
Also, the park has been chosen by the Woodinville Chamber of Commerce to be the charitable organization to share in the proceeds of the chamber's auction Oct. 18 at Echo Falls.
"We need Eagle Scouts and garden clubs, parents, students, and retired folks," Hughes said.
In particular, park supporters are looking for assistance with the sales of the decorative tiles and bricks for the park.
"This is the perfect project for high school business students, sports clubs, and community groups," Hughes added. "And we could really use some sales expertise from a local business or a retired sales executive."
Anyone wishing more information about the park, to volunteer, or to place a brick or tile order should call City Hall at 489-2700.
