We won!  Thanks to all who voted!  Thanks to Umpqua Bank!

From a field of many submissions, Umpqua Bank chose our Magnolia Manor Park P-Patch tool shed as one of the three finalists for their Build Your Block Challenge. With a $10,000 prize at stake, we need your votes!

Beginning Monday, March 12th please make a trip per day to Umpqua bank in the Village and cast your vote for the P-Patch tool shed. You may also vote on-line at Facebook. Other voting rules are as follows:

  • You may do an in-store vote at the Magnolia branch.
  • In-store votes are limited to one vote per day per person. (Person is defined as anyone who can sign his or her name on the ballot, including kids.)
  • All in-store votes must be made in person. No voting by proxy.

The winning project will be announced mid-April. Along with the cash prize comes a pledge of volunteer support to help “bring each project to life,” according to the bank’s web site. If our idea is voted the winning project, we will use the funds to purchase tools, compost bins and the tool shed itself. The Magnolia branch of Umpqua Bank is located at 2236 32nd W in the Village.
