Executive Director, Mary Ann Burggraf addressed the fundraising projects of the foundation. The Foundation's (Commemorative Brick" Campaign -Be A Part Of History) will be the foundations on going mainfundraiser. The PA Wilds Center for Entrepreneurship being the proprietor’s of the new Kinzua Bridge Visitors Center gift shop and not the Kinzua Bridge Foundation which did state their interest with the DCNR in noting all funds from the foundations sales goes directly back to the Kinzua Bridge State Park, however the funds from the PA Wilds gift shop does not contribute directly to the Kinzua Bridge State Park.

Therefore the foundations funding will only be generated from the annual festival along with the Commemorative "Brick" Campaign.

The PA WILDS is purchasing kinzua bridge shirts from the foundation for resale at the PA WILDS shop, with the retail price being paid to the foundation. Burggraf said the goal of the foundation was to fund a playground, a closed pavilion with a fireplace, and an amphitheater. For many years, hundreds of community volunteers have contributed to the development and to say the least in keeping this one and only state park open in Mc Kean County. Some PA counties have up to five stateparks.

Burggraf said: “This Kinzua Bridge Foundation, Inc. with past, present members, and the many formed groups before have certainly been the strong arm that has brought this state park to the wonder it is today along with being listed as one of the “TOP TEN MUST VITST STATE PARKS IN Pennsylvania. “

Clark, President thanked all attending the meeting, saying it was a very productive and enjoyable annual meeting held at the state park, concluded with the meeting being adjourned.
