Grays Harbor Fairgrounds has been awarded a $5,000 grant from the Grays Harbor Community Foundation to improve the restrooms at the Equestrian Center in Elma.
The grant will be used to cover the purchase of doors, paint and fixtures for the restrooms. The Equestrian Center hosts on-going programs and special activities throughout the year – from high school team events to public rodeos to horseback riding for kids with disabilities.
“We are extremely thankful for the grant from the Grays Harbor Community Foundation,” said Kelly Peterson-Lalka of Grays Harbor Fairgrounds.
“We host thousands of participants and visitors throughout the year for equestrian activities, and the improved restroom facilities will make a big difference.”
The Grays Harbor Community Foundation partners with deserving organizations making a difference in the community. They have awarded funding to organizations that cover a broad range of services from providing quality early learning and literacy programs to young residents to caring for area seniors.
Work will begin immediately on the restroom improvements.
