4-H Camp Palmer pool funds
FAYETTE - More than 250,000 youth from Northwest Ohio have enjoyed the pool at 4-H Camp Palmer since 1957. The Wood County 4-H Camp is annually the largest group to use the camp.
The camp is now accepting continuing donations to support the replacement of the camp's aging pool. Currently about 40 percent of funds ($200,000 raised thanks to many generous donors of the estimated $495,000 needed) has been raised with an anticipated new pool in place by summer of 2015. The demand and use of 4-H Camp Palmer has grown steadily since 1947.
4-H Camp Palmer has also organized a brick memorial fundraiser to support the pool fund. A 22 by 22-feet patio will be built surrounding the camp's flagpole at the center of camp. Dedicated 8" by 8" bricks can be purchased by individuals or businesses. Individual, family or non-profit youth group can order one for $100 or a business can purchase a brick for $275 to advertise as thousands of youth and adults will walk by the patio at the center of camp.
The plan is to have bricks that have been purchased prior to April 6 to be installed by early June of 2014. Bricks ordered by July 20 will be installed by early October. The first three years of this brick memorial project, the proceeds will benefit the pool.
