Tyler Food Shelf and Pool Projects

It's been awhile since I posted an update, so here goes. 

Last night at the foundation board meeting, we heard updates on two on-going projects. 

The Tyler Swimming Pool project was up first and we heard about how well the slide was received by the kids this year.  Kristie Johnson informed the board that they will be looking at updating the chairs and tables around the main pool and that the pool group would also be looking at holding another fundraising breakfast the weekend before Thanksgiving to raise dollars for the kiddie pool area.

Joan Jagt then updated the group on the Tyler Food Shelf project.  She mentioned that demolition would start soon and the remodeling would begin soon after.  The food shelf board is expecting the need to raise $10,000 to complete the project.  The are also planning to have a fundraiser, so please stay tuned and we will get that information out as soon as we have it.

If you would like to donate to the Food Shelf project, Swimming Pool project or to our endowment fund, you can make your check out to TACF and mail it to PO Box 239, Tyler, MN  56178.  Remember to write which project you want to donate to on the check and we will make sure it gets put into that account.

Also, stay tuned to the blog and to the newspaper as we start to look for community projects that would be eligible to receive endowment fund grant dollars this year.  We will also be looking for new board members in the next couple of months, so please let us know if you are interested in joining us.   To learn more about the foundation, you can visit with our current board members.  Current board members include:  April Thomas, Glen Petersen, Gary Manson, Joyce Dass, Robert Wolfington, Sandy Enemark, Kristie Johnson, Joan Jagt and Tim O'Leary
