June 2021 – SACCA’S First Program Month (USACE Partnership)

After 20 months of establishing the organization our first actual program month should go into full gear fast.

Pepsi In Parks

G&J Pepsi is providing SACCA and the USACE with assistance in providing vending and concessions in our federal parks for the first time in the dams 50 year history.

  • Pepsi products will be available in vending machines where USACE has provided space – definitely at Alum Creek dam park and visitor center.
  • SACCA makes 50 cents on every $2 drink sold.
  • We hope to have concessions at Alum Creek Below Dam Recreation Area.  G&J is working with us on providing a trailer not only for Concessions but to use as an Information/Program Booth.
  • Our agreement with the USACE does not permit continuous sales so we will only open for concessions on Movies in the Park and Holiday Weekends as currently planned.
  • We are more interested in providing Community Service than fundraising, but we need both.

Dr. Suess – The Lorax – June 26 (Alum Creek)

Weather permitting at 9 p.m. at Alum Creek dam we will be showing Dr. Suess – The Lorax.  (Rain date for both movies is August 21).  We will have concessions available for the weekend if we get volunteers for our Concessions offering.

Raya – The Last Dragon – July 24 (Alum Creek)

Weather permitting at 9 p.m. at Alum Creek dam we will be showing Raya – The Last Dragon.

$5 Charter Memberships (No real benefit, just makes you an official Corps partner.)

I have a goal of selling 2,500 $5 Charter Memberships by September 30.

$5 Dam Stickers

According to rangers and volunteers there is a demand for dam stickers so we have printed 500 of each sticker to find out.  We have 3,000 dam stickers we are providing for a $5 contribution – collect all six!

 Just Another Dam Race & Fun Mile

We intend to make the Just Another Dam Race our major fundraising event.  We need 80 registered runners to break even so if we get good participation 100% of our sponsor funds will go to programs.  The Board has set a goal of 70% funds for West Parking Lot Improvements and 30% to SACCA’s general fund for all dam parks.

REMEMBER:   The Thomas R. Gross Family Foundation founded and funds our operations, therefore all contributions go directly to programming.
