On behalf of Balloon Fest 2016 and the Greater Centralia Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, a donation in the amount of $9,000 was presented to the Centralia Foundation to be used toward park improvements.

Balloon Fest, celebrated its 27th Anniversary in 2016 and contributes $9,000 annually to the Foundation Park system. Balloon Fest is fortunate to have such a scenic nature park as the location for this magnificent community event, and the Chamber is appreciative of the support of the Foundation Board.

The charitable donation was presented at the Chamber’s September monthly board meeting to Dan Griffin representing the Centralia Foundation Board and David Sachtleben, Foundation Park Superintendent. The 28th Annual Balloon Fest is scheduled for August 18, 19 & 20, 2017.
