Four members of Overbrook Ridgeway Masonic Lodge No. 62 AF&AM were guests at the regular monthly meeting of Overbrook PRIDE on Saturday, Jan. 21, 2017. They presented PRIDE with a check for $1,000 as a donation to an improvement project at Overbrook City Park.
The project includes pouring a new trailway (sidewalk) at the Youth Fishing Pond. Currently, there is a trailway around the entirety of the larger City Lake. The new walk will extend that trailway to and from a bridge that crosses the Youth Fishing Pond which is located just south of the larger lake.
Local donations, along with this check from the Ridgeway Lodge, provide enough funding to complete the first phase of the new trailway. A second phase will be done when additional funds are received.
Overbrook PRIDE, Inc., a 501(c)(3) community improvement organization, is established as part of the Kansas State Extension Service and has been a vital part of the development and continuing improvements at the City Park, City Lake and Youth Fishing Pond, Jones Sports Parks, and downtown Overbrook. The group is comprised of all volunteer members with a common goal of maintaining the best quality of life possible in Overbrook.
Overbrook PRIDE meets at the Overbrook American Legion building at 8 a.m. on the third Saturday of each month. Anyone from Overbrook and the nearby area is welcome.
