Annual Gala Info
We are Holding our 5th annual Daddy - Daughter Gala, with formal attire on Feb 18th, from 4-7:30 PM. This will be held at Kalahari Resort and Convention Center. All profits will go toward projects at the "Regional Park"-
Our 2017 Gala was overwhelming. We had 300 attend and turned away over 325. The location of Kalahari will change that. We are planning on 500-600 attending.
Registrations are available on the front page of this website, our office or may be emailed to you. Contact the office for more info.

Fundraising is an ongoing item. We hold our Gala each February.
We have several other ways for the public to donate. You may always give cash. any amount over $100 is tax deductible.
When you sign up for the gala you may include extra if you would like. When attending a Park program or function you may donate at that time. You may always stop in the office and make a donation and ask for a receipt for tax purposes.

On going and upcoming ideas,
Harold has on his personal Facebook Page a $5,000 goal to raise money for the Regional Park Memorial Garden area.
We are considering "Buy a Memorial Brick" campaign too. More details will be available in January and February.

For either of these contact Harold at the office Mon - Fri at 570-629-0966.

Regional Park Entrance Gates
As the HJP Regional Park develops, the need for more secure items is a necessity. The Friends Organization has been asked to purchase gates for the main driveway at the Regional Park. These need to be solid, attractive and functional. Several ideas have come up in style and design. We would like to see the gates accessible to emergency responders. The Emergency Landing zone should be available 24/7.
As you can see we have a good task before us. This project should happen in the late spring or early summer of 2018
Trail Markings
The Friends Organization has agreed to purchase for the park signs for the trails so people can find their way our on hikes back to the parking lot.
They have also agreed to purchase speed limit signs and other road information signs.
