Sled Shed Capital Campaign Complete!

Grasseroots Fund Contributes $15000

The Grasseroots Fund contributed $15,000 for the Sled Shed Project, more than doubling the amount raised previously, and coupled with in-kind donations, completing the capital campaign goal.

The fund is a donor advised fund established by Peter and Kathy Wyckoff of Canton through the Northern New York Community Foundation.

In addition to support from the Grasseroots Fund, major contributors to the Sled Shed include the Sweetgrass Foundation, NuMED for Children, Brookfield Renewables, St. Lawrence Health, SeaComm Federal Credit Union, and Frazer Software and Motors.

Major in-kind support was also provided by FCS Engineering and Development, PLLC; S&L Electric; Catamount Ridge Quarry; JC Merriman’s; and Witherbee & Whalen.

Work on the Sled Shed was completed recently.  An official ribbon cutting is planned for the weekend of January 27th as part of the Friend’s Family Weekend.

Donations will still be accepted to offset additional expenses such as equipping the shed with basic tools and maintenance supplies.


Representatives of the Grasseroots Fund and Friends of Higley Flow State Park meet near the site of the new Sled Shed this past summer when told by the Northern New York Community Foundation that the group would be receiving $15000 from the Grasseroots Fund for the project.
