$6600 Need to Reach $25,000 Goal
Park Hills City Employees and Community Members are nearing the goal to raise the $25,000 need to place a new playground in Elvins Park to honor the Late Paula Lee.

Paula was a 37-year employee of the City of Park Hills who suddenly lost her life to COVID-related illnesses in late 2020. Paula had a profound love for kids; all kids. For that reason, City and Community members agreed that the best way to honor her life was with the placement of new playground equipment, geared toward toddlers, in Elvins Park - a park near her home and dear to her heart. In roughly 6-months time, the effort is nearly complete; approximately $6600 to go!

If you are interested in helping to complete this project, please contact Samantha Vaughn at City Hall.

Relationship Building
Local business owners have more in common with one another than profits; they’re also interesting individuals.

Building relationships, at the business and personal level, is important for a person’s health and well-being.

Communication, these days, is often accomplished in the digital realm. That doesn’t mean that face-to-face encounters aren’t important. In fact, they’re more important than ever!

Taking part in Chamber activities is a fun way to make new friends and build strong business relationships.

Stronger Relationships Mean Stronger Contacts; Personally & Professionally!
