A reception was held for Arc of Yates donors in July at the Agency’s program facility. Donors were recognized for their contributions, including funding and in-kind donations that allowed for a new green space adjacent to the 235 program center. The project gained traction when the Agency received $4,500 in grant funding from the Yates Community Endowment.
The two acre parcel, purchased after the flood in 2014 to complete flood mitigation, is being cleared to create a wheelchair accessible cinder trail. Additional plans include construction of a bridge, additional trails and natural enhancements. The woodlands are located in the middle of the village and will be usable by the community at large.
