Santee’s Town Center Park West in the running for major grant

Santee’s Town Center Community Park West is competing with other parks around the country for a grant from Coca-Cola’s Live Positively project. The top vote getter in the competition will receive a $100,000 grant, with second place getting $50,000 and third place earning $25,000. Currently TCCP is in 20th place with just over 24,000 votes; the third place park, Cunningham Park in Thurmont, MD, has over 270,000 votes. So, as you can see, Santee needs to get out and vote in order to bring our park up in the standings. There are three ways to cast votes for our park: 1) go online to LivePositively.com and vote for Town Center Community Park in Santee; 2) upload a picture from the park, worth 5 votes; 3) visit the park and use the Facebook Places logon to check in, again for 5 votes. You will need to register for any of the options, and for the Facebook vote you will need to allow Live Positively to access your account (just like you do for Farmville and all those other applications you use).

For more information about the program, you can visit Live Positively or check out the story on Santee Patch. Now, let’s all get out there and remember the Chicago method – vote early and often!
