Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the South Fork Friends Foundation
In 2022, we secured a grant from the Rawlings Foundation and received funds from Rio Grande County and the town of South Fork to build an ice rink by winter and basketball court by summer.
SFFF has raised over $120,000 for this project. The Town of South Fork crew and True Grit Excavation are making our "Legacy Project" a reality that we can all enjoy for decades to come. The concrete work is done, and the surface is currently being sealed so it can hold the water for the ice rink. The basketball hoops are on site and will installed shortly. The landscaping is under way and fits the character of the park and the town perfectly. Solar lights, picnic tables, BBQ pits, and more amenities will follow. Thanks to all our donors who have made this possible!
We continue to raise funds to improve access to the park, complete the brick walkway and provide volleyball nets for multi-use. To contribute to this project simply mail your check to the South Fork Friends Foundation, PO Box 654, South Fork, Co. 81154. If you want your donation to be directed specifically to the Rickel Park project, write "Legacy Fund" on your check or include a note stating this.
You may also donate and by clicking the button on the right. Just put "Legacy Fund" in the comments box on the donation page.
The South Fork Friends Foundation is currently honoring donations of $1000 and above with the name of your choice on a brick paving the future walkway at the park. Put your name, or that of a loved one, on an indelible piece of South Fork history with your tax-deductible donation.
