A Post Gala Wrap-Up & Thank You

Post Gala Wrap-Up | West Central Park Project

Dear friends and neighbors,

Thank you all so very much to those who attended and donated to the West Central Park Gala last weekend! Even with all the unforeseen changes leading up to last week’s event, we are happy to say that it was a great success! Collectively we brought in over $9000 to help support our operating costs in 2019. It was a fun filled evening and we are all so grateful for the support of the Olympia community!

If you were at the event last Friday you should have received a voucher for a special night at the Park Side Cafe. This upcoming event will give everyone who attended the gala a chance to get inside the Park Side Cafe prior to it’s grand opening, tour the space, and enjoy more of their delicious new menu as a thank you for supporting the West Central Park! The date is still undetermined, but we will contact everyone who attended the gala as soon as we know so you can mark you calendars!


This Sunday, we’re back in action for our weekly work party! Join us at the park from 11am to 1pm for ongoing garden upkeep, litter pickup, and general park maintenance.


We are currently seeking a part-time Executive Director who can step into a multi-faceted role managing aspects of the Park. Duties included but not limited to are media relations, fundraising, creation of a membership program, cultural programming, and local networking with Olympia based organizations. The role will necessitate the ability to learn to write grants and work to ensure the board fulfills it’s own fiduciary responsibilities. Our most immediate needs include fundraising, volunteer recruitment and management, and preserving already established relationships with local organizations. The executive director will need to communicate closely with the WCP Board to assure adherence to the mission and vision of the Park and to plan programming. The position will begin at 15 hours per week and pay will be commensurate with experience and ability level.

We will be accepting applications until January 1, 2019. Interviews will be held January 14 through 21. 

TO APPLY: Please email your resume and cover letter to wcp@aparkforus.org.
