On page 7 of last week’s Moorcroft Leader, in the article “Bike raffle for new park…” clarification has been requested.
The grant, of which the original source for the story spoke, has been abandoned by council.
“We had the option to,” recreation board liaison Kristy Speed later explained, “[but] due to the stipulations, we chose not to do it.”
The board had received $30,000 in their 2022/2023 budget to build this park and Sharon Coleman is raffling the bicycle and scooters under her own initiative to donate all proceeds to the recreation board to make the best park possible before June 30.
“As far as the scooter raffle, that has nothing to do with the rec board, but the rec board is helping with selling the tickets.”
