BEEVILLE – The Lions Club and the Sports and Recreation Foundation of Beeville (SRFB) are getting closer to having their second $750 matching donation become a reality.

The total received as of Monday on the second phase of the anonymous challenge stands at $425. Only an additional $325 is needed to implement the matching terms of the donation.

Funds for the project will go to funding improvements at Klipstein Park. The two organizations have raised more than $12,000 to date for phase one of the project which has an initial cost of approximately $18,000.

The Beeville Economic Improvement Committee has been asked to help provide additional funds to complete the project and that request is now with a BEIC subcommittee to determine its feasibility.

Additional funds will be needed for phase two of the project which would entail the construction of a padded walking trail around the eastside park.

The SRFB has identified additional projects around the area that include but are not limited to improvements at Nopal Park, an outside pavilion at the Beeville Boys and Girls Club, improvements to Reyes Park on the city’s southwest side, completion of the girls’ and college’s softball field in Veterans Memorial Park, and improvements for the senior/junior baseball field at Veterans Memorial Park. There are several more projected improvements throughout the county that the SRFB hopes to one day see undertaken by the community.
