Julian's Accessible Trail Project
At the Town Board meeting, Julian presented a project to the members of the board to make some of the trails at Lakeside Park more accessible for all to enjoy.
The board unanimously agreed to support Julian's project and will be accepting donations to offset the expenses to help make his project a reality.
Your donation here will be earmarked specifically for Julian’s project of the All Access Trail Project. Below is a brief write up from Julian about his vision.
Any donation amount is greatly appreciated. Donations can be made via check, cash or credit card.
"My name is Julian, I am 12 years old and I live in Pawling. I love helping the community and at age 9 I built a Book Box for Lakeside Park. I think that everybody should enjoy nature and have the chance to be in the woods and breathe in the fresh air. I noticed a need in Lakeside Park for building an All Access trail in the woods so everyone can enjoy nature. The closest Handicap All Access trail is in the Stamford Nature Center in CT. This would be a benefit in the community because it would show that Pawling cares about everyone. Through fund raising and the support of the Town and Lakeside Park, I would love to see my dream become a reality!"
The Fred Hauser Camp Scholarship Fund
Fred Hauser had a great love for the out-of-doors and appreciated the beauty of the woods, streams, and lakes in and around Pawling. He and his young son, Jake, often went fishing, hiking, and swimming at Pawling’s Lakeside Park. After Fred died, Jake continued attending the Pawling Recreation Summer Camp where he made friends and enjoyed the park’s beauty. The recreation staff has always been friendly and supportive and makes the camp fun for all. The goal of the Fred Hauser Camp Scholarship Fund is to provide an opportunity for those children who otherwise might not be able to afford to attend the camp.
