Citizens for Baldwin City plan membership drive

August 22, 2001

Citizens for Baldwin City is looking for some new faces.

The organization is sponsoring a pool party from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. as part of its membership drive.

CFBC president Dana Robertson said the membership pool party, which is also a reward for current members for their recent fundraising efforts, is open to anyone who is interested in becoming a member. Their families are also welcome to attend.

"We want new faces and new ideas," Robertson said.

There are no age restrictions and no fee to join, she said.

"It's basically a family thing," she said.

CFBC is an organization that sponsors events and activities for Baldwin, she said. In the past, CFBC has sponsored the Fourth of July community fireworks display, had a food booth at the Maple Leaf Festival and organized Spooks on Parade, a Halloween event for children.

Robertson said CFBC currently has plans for a large fundraiser to upgrade all of the city's parks. The organization will send home surveys with students and also have surveys available in local businesses.

"We want their input on what they would like to see in the parks," she said. "The surveys are to let us know what they want."

In case people can't make it to the pool Monday, Robertson said there will be a meeting open to everyone 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 10 at the 11th Street park to discuss future park improvements.

She said anyone interested in helping with community events and fundraisers should join CFBC.

"We like to do things for the community," Robertson said. "We're always needing new ideas of things to do for the community."
