Scholarship Program:

The members and staff at the ARC understand the needs for the people in this community.  By providing a scholarship program, we are giving families and individuals a safe environment, a chance to experience an active lifestyle and providing other opportunities to help them grow.  

As a part of this program you can choose your level of sponsorship!  You can make a flat donation or sponsor a Family, Youth, Student, Adult or Senior Membership.  There is no minimum donation for this program.  Any amount would greatly be appreciated.

Memorial Tree Donations:

Trees are an excellent living memorial and a means to beautifying Williston.  Trees are available for purchase from the park district.  In addition to the tree purchase, a maintenance fee will apply.

Donors will be recognized with a letter of appreciation and the opportunity to be present as the tree is planted.

Donations may also be given for the replacement for trees or shrubs that did not survive in our park system or for future plantings at locations to be determined by the Park District.  These donations will be used on an as needed basis to replace and plant trees enhancing the beauty of our park system.  We ask for a minimum $125.00 donation for this program.

Bench Dedication Program:

Benches are an outstanding memorial that can make a park more practical and attractive!

Donors will be recognized with a letter of appreciation and the opportunity to be present as the bench is put in place.  The bench can be engraved to be personalized.  The Park District will work with the party in locating an appropriate location for the bench.  We ask for a minimum donation fo $750.00 for this program.
