The Breese Optimist Club is planning to replace the 31-year-old playground equipment at Southside Park and install a sand volleyball court.
The club has committed $50,000 toward the project and is filing a request for a state grant. Part of the grant process is community support, so Breese Chamber of Commerce members are being asked to submit a letter backing the Optimists Club’s project.
Letters can be submitted by e-mail to Mayor Charlie Hilmes at firstname.lastname@example.org. This must be done by Friday, August 16.
