Thanks for the support
The New Ken/Arnold Social in the Park committee received a $20,000 grant from the Community Foundation of Westmoreland County. This private grant, in addition to the $3,800 raised at the Band Blast benefit concert in September will be used to make repairs and renovations to Pavilions A & B at Memorial Park in New Kensington.
This will be a joint project between the Northern Westmoreland Career Technical Center, the City of New Kensington, and the committee.
We would like to thank Larry Milito, mayor of Arnold, for connecting us with the foundation to apply for the grant, New Kensington Councilman Tim DiMao for helping us get the critical information we needed for the grant, all of the bands that donated their immense talent and valuable time, the food vendors, the community groups, the activities, the City of New Kensington, the Northern Westmoreland Career and Technical Center, Trib Total Media and, most of all, the public who came and supported our events. Without all of you, this would not have been possible.
Please continue to support us by attending both of our benefit concerts: Rockin’ Roosevelt on May 17, 2015, at Roosevelt Park in Arnold and Band Blast on Sept. 20, 2015, at Memorial Park in New Kensington.
