The Project page is an overview summary of each project of the Foundation.
Hagerman Valley News™: The Foundation has chosen to further its community goals by providing a monthly Community Newsletter mailed free of charge to every address in Hagerman and Bliss. It combines business ads with news from our many community organizations such as the National Park Service, our State Parks, Library, Schools, Churches, Senior Center, Cowboy Poet Society, Fire Department, Hagerman City, Bliss City, the Food Bank, Obituaries, Pathways and the Foundation. All organizations are encouraged to get their next month’s events into the Monthly Calendar, which is printed in the newsletter and added to our online calendar. We are seeking newsletter sponsors to ease the burden of advertising for our nonprofits and community organizations.
New Swing Set for the City Park: The old swing set is gone and the new swing set has been ordered! Besides raising almost $1500 from the local community, the Foundation applied for and received a $5000 grant from First Federal Foundation. These swing sets are custom made upon order so we don’t have a delivery date yet. As soon as it is delivered, the Foundation will pay Aaron Beutler to get it installed with city assistance. A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO ALL OUR DONORS!
New Corrected Street Signs for USPS, Title and Emergency Services: Evidently about 5 years ago, when the street signs were updated, they were incorrect. This has caused major problems for title insurance companies, the post office and emergency services. We are seeking donations to fund new signs for Hagerman’s streets.
Hagerman City Sidewalks: The Foundation is working with the City to apply for grants to pave ADA compliant State street sidewalks, then improve the city lights and beautification. We are working closely with the City Supervisor in coordinating a master overview of the city park, parking lots, the bike path and other efforts by the city and other organizations. We are seeking donations to raise matching funds for this project.
