Dogwood Park Fund-Raiser Scheduled

The second annual "After Dark" series, benefitting Dogwood Park is coming up next month. Council member Ryan Williams says the events include a 10K run, a one-mile run for kids, and a family movie night. He and his wife organized the first such event last year to help raise money for the development of Dogwood Park on Broad Street. The city purchased the property a couple of years ago and tore down an existing commercial building. They have since added some sod to the area that was once asphalt, but have also said that fully developing the park may take several years. The "After Dark" series is intended to provide the public with a way to accelerate the development of the park, while also having fun. The deadline to register for the runs is Tuesday, July 21.
