Our clear next goal, The Colfax Pavilion
In the space to the East of Bumper’s Pub, where the Hardware store once stood, sits another empty lot on Main Street, which we wanted to rectify.
Our board conceptualized the idea for the “Colfax Pavilion”. A space that can host Farmer’s Markets, Concerts, family reunions, and so much more right in the heart of our community.
To raise money for this effort, we launched the “50-50” club, which would see 50 graduates of each Octavia and Ridgeview donate $1,000, to raise the capital needed for the concrete, the pavilion, and all associated costs. When donating, folks are able to get a paver in front of the pavilion, with their names, honoring their donation.
At date, we have raised over $40,000 but are still $60,000-plus short on the project, with the inflated costs of COVID hurting our efforts on materials.
We have spent over $26,000 at present on concrete and materials to get the baseline laid, and the community rallying around excitement for the project.
