Organization Urges the Public to Sign Petition to Save the Community Resource
Augusta, Georgia – For Immediate Release – Today, the Junior League of Augusta, Georgia, Inc. announced its support for the survival of Pendleton King Park. This area of Augusta has become a well-established site for families to play, learn and grow. In a time where it becomes harder in our community to interact with neighbors, a community park is the perfect ground where everyone can find enjoyment.
The Junior League of Augusta, Georgia, accepts and affirms the position statement of the Association of Junior Leagues International and therefore is committed to assuring that women and children have opportunities and services essential for optimal physical, intellectual, emotional, mental and social growth and will advocate that such opportunities and services are provided.
From 2003 to 2006, the Junior League of Augusta raised $75,000 to buy and install two playgrounds on its current site. We know the decision regarding the park’s continuance is not easy, but the Junior League of Augusta implores that the mayor, the commissioners and the trustees honor the request of Henry Barclay King and find some way in which this park can continue.
To join the Junior League of Augusta, Georgia in saving this gem, please sign the following community petition: https://www.pendletonkingpark.com
