October 11, 2013

On behalf of Balloon Fest 2013 and the Greater Centralia Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, a donation in the amount of $7,500 was presented to the Centralia Foundation to be used toward park improvements.

Balloon Fest, celebrated its 24th Anniversary in 2013 and contributes $7,500 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 to Verle Besant representing the Foundation Board and David Sachtleben, Foundation Park Superintendent at the Chamber’s monthly board meeting on October 8, 2013. The 25th Annual Balloon Fest is scheduled for August 15, 16 & 17, 2014.
