Members of the Kiwanis Club made a special presentation to officials with the city of Dyersburg on Tuesday afternoon, with a $10,000 donation for improvements to Kiwanis Park on Tickle Street.

The funds will be matched by a recent Local Parks and Recreation Fund (LPRF) grant recently awarded to the city. The Federal grant is administered through the state of Tennessee.

"We donated $10,000 in order for the city to build a second pavilion at Kiwanis Park," said Kiwanis President Megan Madden.

"We have been trying to revamp this park," said Dyersburg Parks and Recreation Director Andy Baker. "Since we put in this playground equipment, we've seen an increase in the use of the park."

"We would like to thank the Kiwanis Club for their generous contribution to improve the health and wellness of our community," said Dyersburg Mayor John Holden. "There are a lot of children living in this area who will benefit from these improvements."

Baker and Holden said the new pavilion should be completed by this summer.

Those attending the presentation included Madden, Kiwanis President-Elect Taylor Moore, Kiwanis Assistant Treasurer Brandon Brewer, Holden, Baker and Dyersburg City Recorder Bob Jones.
