South park fundraiser planned for Saturday

Residents from South Williamsport and beyond are invited to take part in a “Pack the Park” event from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday at the South Williamsport park complex.

The event is being held to raise money for needed repairs and upgrades to the park, including a new tennis court.

All proceeds from the event will be used for park needs, according to organizers.

The South Williamsport Park Improvement Association, formed several months ago, hopes to raise $100,000 for the project.

Saturday’s event will include food, music, entertainment, sports activities and dunk tanks and an evening bonfire.
