Business community supports Kilmarnock park

Both Omega Protein and the Northern Neck Association of Realtors recently presented mayor Mae Umphlett $2,000 checks for benches at the new Kilmarnock Town Centre Park, 150 North Main Street, Kilmarnock.

“We are excited to be part of this new addition to our community,” said Andy Hall, Omega Protein general manager.

“The park presents another reason why this is such a wonderful community to be a part of and to buy a home in,” said Northern Neck Association of Realtors’ incoming president Pam Nelson.

Mayor Umphlett received both organizations at the Town Hall this past week.

“On behalf of the town, we thank both of these organizations for their extraordinary generosity and commitment to our community,” said Umphlett.

“We invite anyone who wants to be a park sponsor to go to our website for the listing of available items. This is a wonderful way to commemorate a family member or a business. There will be a large sign with all of the sponsors displayed for the park’s visitors,” she said.

To become a sponsor, go to kilmarnockva.com/kilmarnock-town-park, or contact Marshall Sebra, 435-1552, ext 32, or msebra@kilmarnockva.com.

A grand opening celebration is slated July 8 at the park.
