Campaign for Picnic Tables at Clermont
Spring is fast approaching, and we will be putting in our order for new picnic tables in early April. For $300, you can sponsor a picnic table at the site! Each sponsored table will have a plaque affixed to them recognizing yourself, your family, business, organization, or in honor or memory of a loved one. As our deadline for picnic table orders is just around the corner, so sponsors don’t delay! This is a great way to directly support the park and recognize someone! Click here for more information.
