Money raised for Seligman programs
On July 14, the Seligman City Council heard that over $1,200 has been raised for parks, recreation and community youth programs this summer.
Summer Fest 2008, which was held June 13, brought in $803, and the horseshoe tournament that was held in conjunction with the annual community festival raised $120. The city also received $345 from Countryside Cafe and Our Place, which sponsored a poker run for the city's recreation programs.
The aldermen expressed appreciation for all of the donations and community support.
