I want to thank everyone who sent in their envelopes to the Marietta Community Foundation in the name of the Devola Pool/Playground Renovation (EMCA). The first week of donations has been a great success. I also want to thank those who called me or emailed me with pledges of materials and/or services. We have had offers of concrete, a pump motor, limestone, metal for a roof replacement, attention to the surface of the tennis court, and a couple of offers of helping out when the time comes. (We still have a list of needed materials) Money and materials help us with the project. We also are seeking volunteerism to make the project a total success. Please get involved. The article in Saturday's Marietta Times was great; thank you.
