Organized in 2002, Friends of the Marion Parks, a nonprofit
organization, has supported the department through
purchasing equipment, providing volunteers to assist with
events or programs, and coordinating park staff recognition.
The Board of the Friends of the Marion Parks meets the second
Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. from March to October. Since
all projects are supported by memberships and donations, a
membership drive occurs in early September. New and renewal
memberships are welcomed anytime throughout the year.
Individual memberships are $10, family memberships are $15,
and lifelong memberships are $175.
If you have ideas for projects, are interested in volunteering
or would like to serve on the board, please contact volunteer
coordinator, Marjorie Jensen at 377-5516 or the Marion Parks Dept. 447-3590 for more information.
