Fries Park Project

Donations for the Fries Park Project can now be made online by going to .  Simply click on the dropdown arrow under payment type and select Park Project Donation. A 2.5% convenience will be assessed by the site provider for credit cards and a flat fee of $1.00 will be assessed for debit cards.
Thank you for your donations to help with new park equipment for the children of Fries!


Community Build Day for the park is December 8th at 8am.

Volunteers are needed to help assemble the park equipment.

We are also $2,000.00 short of the final payment on the playground equipment and mulch.  A generous donor has volunteered to match every donation made up to $1,000.00. 
Please help make this project a success for the children of Fries and surrounding communities!
