December 15, 2017. After four years of fundraising, the Veterans Tribute Fund to support maintenance and upkeep of the Veterans Park has reached its goal. Hundreds of individual gifts pooled together to reach the $25,000 level. Thank you to the generous people and organizations who made this happen.

In the years ahead, the City of Tipp City will be able to rely on the proceeds from this fund to offset maintenance costs. Lush with parks, the City’s many public spaces require a considerable amount of revenue to sustain their beauty. In the instance of the Veterans Park at the corner of Hyatt and Main Streets, now that cost burden will be underwritten.

Ron Re, co-founder of the park and creator of the endowment fund, hopes that the giving won’t end though the goal has been reached. The more the fund grows, the more the City can access for annual maintenance such as polishing brass statuary and replacing flags. Endowments of the Tipp City Foundation access four percent of assets annually to be used toward the stated purpose of the fund.

O. Box 626, Tipp City, Ohio 45371.
