Coupon books to help splashpark project

Books are for sale at YCS, Jim’s Food Market, Greffard’s Saw Shop and Outdoors/Greenscapes Art and Craft, and Blue Loon Grill

Editor, The Times:

On behalf of Success By 6, we are very excited to announce that our first ever Clearwater and Area Coupon Savings Book is available for purchase. A dedicated group of volunteer parents from Clearwater Memorial Splashpark Committee spearheaded this project. This fundraiser will raise dollars for projects, such as the Splashpark, for years to come in that will benefit the lives of young children and their families.

Books are $30 each with all proceeds going towards Success By 6. Our identified recipient of funds for 2014 is the Clearwater Memorial Splashpark project, a fantastic community feature for families that Success By 6 plans to support in a large way over the coming years as the development process continues.

Books are for sale at Yellowhead Community Services, Jim’s Food Market (Clearwater), Greffard’s Saw Shop and Outdoors/Greenscapes Art and Craft, and Blue Loon Grill. We are eager to have other businesses sell the books at their storefronts as well, so please contact YCS at 250-674-2600 to request a delivery.

There are only 350 books in print so we expect them to sell quickly. Included are multiple entry cards for draws, including six draws for Safety Mart gift certificates throughout the year. The first draw will be on Jan. 4 for a $200 gift certificate, so buy yours today for fantastic odds of winning!

Finally, a huge thank you to our business community for participating and providing incentives that allowed this project to become a reality. This project was created from a group of volunteer parents under a fairly tight timeline. Because of this, we apologize to any businesses we may have missed contacting this year to be a part of it, you will be sure to have the opportunity in next year’s book!

It must also be mentioned that our dearly appreciated local Rooted By the River Nursery submitted a coupon to be included and it was missed in the final draft. We love Rooted By the River and how community orientated they are in Clearwater. They were incredibly supportive and understanding of the error and we thank them whole heartedly for their kindness. Success By 6 plans to honor their business incentives at our community events throughout the year.
