Request of $45,000 from Davie County Economic Development Commission
The Park at Lake Louise—Phase II Completed in late 2020, the first phase of the Park at Lake Louise is already a popular addition to the community surrounding Lake Louise and the renovated Colin Creek Golf Club. The old tennis courts at the former Hickory Hill Country Club were transformed from cracked, unsightly tennis courts to a vibrantly colored playground, with equipment suitable for all ages and stages to enjoy. No sooner had the equipment been installed when the park began welcoming visitors to enjoy the playground, stationary exercise equipment for adults, heavy duty park benches, and new trails for walking, running, and biking. Phase II will expand the existing Park at Lake Louise to include additional trails for walking, running, and biking, as well as two picnic areas. One picnic area will be for small groups or families, and the other suitable for larger groups. In addition, Phase II includes educational boards and heavy duty benches along the paths.

Request of $1,500 from Macedonia Moravian Preschool
Musicare & Arts Enrichment Macedonia Moravian Preschool closed their doors to in-person learning in March 2020 with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the older and more vulnerable demographic of the Macedonia Moravian Church members, and out of an abundance of caution for the safety of their students and staff, they made the difficult decision to remain closed for the 2020-21 school year. The inability to generate income for the past year has left a gap in what would have otherwise been used to fund enrichment programs. Providing music education through Musicare and partnering with a local artist to provide art instruction serves their students, supports Davie business, and follows the path set forth by early learning initiatives. Musicare is a preschool based program designed to introduce children to music and rhythm and will serve approximately 50 students (depending on enrollment), ages 2-5 in MMP two-, three-, and four-year old classrooms, as well as their Kindergarten Readiness class.
