The Greater Centralia Chamber of Commerce has once again donated $10,000 to the Centralia Foundation to be used toward park improvements.
Chamber Executive Director Marcus Holland says Balloon Fest is fortunate to have such a scenic nature park as the location for this magnificent community event and the Chamber is appreciative of the support of the Foundation Board.
The charitable donation was presented at the chamber’s September monthly board meeting to Bill Sprehe representing the Centralia Foundation Board.
The 30th Annual Balloon Fest is scheduled for August 16th, 17th, and 18th.
