And here it is — the 36th Annual Service auction, held Saturday, March 25. Watch it all set-up, being held and cleaned up!
For the past 35 years. the HWMC Service Auction has raised funds to support many significant projects with our community. The Service Auction is a fundraising event where goods and personal and professional services donated by community merchants, artists, residents and members are auctioned.
Attendance at the Auction is for adults only. All refreshments and food are complimentary, thanks to the generosity of our many sponsors.
Of the thirteen parks within Huntington Woods, Scotia Park is truly our "central" park, used by much of the community. It is the destination of every July 4th parade and home to the Concerts in the Park, Teddy Bear Picnic, as well as many other community-wide programs, events and gatherings.
Scotia Park has numerous issues that can no longer be ignored. The ground is very compacted and drains poorly. Events have frequently been canceled or moved from the park due to flooding as a result of even the most minor rainfall. Landscape is overgrown and no longer represents our lovely city and accessibility is minimally addressed in its current state.
The Scotia Park Project addresses both functional and aesthetic improvements. The renovations incorporate water management utilizing elevated surfaces and rain gardens: landscape removal and plantings; and improvements in accessibility with the addition of walkways, entrances, gathering spaces and bicycle parking. The goal is to provide a more enjoyable park experience for people of all abilities, while enhancing our traditional community events.
Utilizing the Men's Club donation and resources from within the community, we will have a well-deserved park.
