I just did. Seems like a great cause and I'd encourage everyone else to do it as well.

Due to the unique nature of this grant, the staff has agreed that this thread should be pinned for the duration of the voting period in order to keep support alive.

Please vote to help Spartanburg win this grant opportunity!!!

It takes about 2 to 3 minutes to register and vote. Definitely worth it.

Wow. Excellent find, djh1963! I just cast my vote. I really agree with what the mayor said about the positive impact on parks, so I'd love to see Spartanburg get the grant. But even if we don't, I'd be more than happy to donate time and money to the cause!

Well, it was worth a shot.

Atlanta definitely isn't a surprise. They should have left this one to the small fishes. $25K is pocket change to them.
