Lions Splash Pad

It might be getting cold, but the Scotia-Glenville Lions are looking forward to next summer.  The Lions are planning to build a 1000 square-foot Splash Pad in Collins Park (Scotia, NY).  The Splash pad is a in-ground fountain with no standing water that provides a fun and safe place for children (and brave adults) to cool off on hot summer days.

Planning is underway with the Village and Park officials to make this a reality.  As of Nov 1, roughly $41,000 of the $75,000 has been raised towards Lions Splash Pad.  We need your help to make it a reality:
