Mayor Hays Arnold and the City of Thomaston are celebrating.
The City of Thomaston received a check from Community Enterprises, Inc. for $200,000 to be used for funding on the Greatest Generation Memorial Park.
Community Enterprises has addressed quality of life issues in Thomaston for many years and this latest donation is another example of their steadfast resolve to benefit the community. Several years ago. Community Enterprises stepped up and donated some $200,000 that helped make the purchase of the “Pine Thicket” and additional Silvertown property a reality.
In a written statement to The Thomaston Times Mayor Arnold expressed his gratitude to Community Enterprise for their generous donation.
“Thomaston and Upson County are truly blessed to have Community Enterprises as a citizen in our community. We also need to realize that Community Enterprises is comprised of local individuals who share a common goal - to help make their community a better place to live and leave things better than they found them. I offer the sincere thanks of all our citizens to the members of Community Enterprises, Inc. Board of Directors and to President Neil Hightower for his vision and leadership.
This latest donation has tipped us over the $1,000,000.00 mark in total funds available for constructing the Greatest Generation Memorial Park. We are complying with all state requirements and anticipate physical construction to begin within 12 months. We have received many calls from individuals and organizations who want to participate in donations or services and those opportunities are fast approaching. I encourage everyone who has an interest in making a donation or has an idea for a fund raising project to contact Mayor Hays Arnold, City of Thomaston, P.O. Box 672, Thomaston, GA 30286.
Working together, we can accomplish things beyond our wildest imagination. Thomaston is preparing for its destiny and we are all a part: of that destiny.”
