BURTON — Organizers of the proposed Burton Dog Park, to be located at Our Risen Lord Lutheran Church, 4040 Lapeer Rd., are trying to raise $1,500 to begin construction on the project by September.
Supporters of the Dog Park are continuing to ask for donations from area businesses and people interested in building the dog park.
Major donors include Michigan Realtors; MTA – Flint; ELGA Credit Union; and Security Credit Union. The group also credits the people who recently held a spaghetti dinner fundraiser for the park and a “very generous Burton resident.”
Organizers also thanked Dawn Weier and Burton City Councilwoman Tina Conley for their generous raffle donation at the spaghetti dinner.
Ace-Saginaw Paving Company donated a couple tons of recycled asphalt product and some people donated gently used chain link fence, helping to reduce the cost of the project.
