A one-time tuition fee of $450.00 for current Chamber members or $500 for non-members helps to cover program fees, materials and meals. Payment is due prior to the first session in September.

Reservoir Park Pavilion & Public Restroom Renovation Project

The Leadership in Action team has decided to renovate the pavilion and public restrooms at Paulding Reservoir Park for their community service project. The fundraising goal is $50,000!!!

The primary goal of the proposed renovation project is to create a safer and more welcoming environment for our community to enjoy. 
The team believes that it will not only enhance the overall appeal and safety of the park but that this project reflects their commitment to giving back to Paulding County and its residents for years to come.

The renovated pavilion and restrooms will not only contribute to the beautification of the Paulding Reservoir Park but will also serve as a valuable asset for the entire community. To support this initiative, we invite you to consider making a charitable donation.
