Civic club deserves our support

Published 11:01am Tuesday, July 1, 2014

Doing a lot with a little has become commonplace for many organizations in today’s economy.

One of the organizations that achieves this each year is the Coal Grove Betterment Club.

The civic organization is ramping up for its annual Family Fun Days at Paul Porter Park starting today. The event helps garner community togetherness along with being a fundraiser for various projects at the park and the village.

While membership may have diminished some over the years, the remaining members and other volunteers remain steadfast to ensure the club can continue to make a difference in their community.

While it only lasts a few days, Family Fun Days has become a staple for the Coal Grove community and the Tri-State that offers a plethora of activities and fun for families to enjoy, not to mention the fireworks display on Thursday.

It is important for us to get out and support all of our local organizations that rely on the community’s help for various causes.

We encourage residents from throughout the county and region to make the trip and attend during Family Fun Days scheduled for July 1-3.
