Legacy is leading dramatic improvements to the overall beauty and use of Madison Park. With a cohesive partnership with Fargo Public Schools, Fargo Park District, Fargo Police Department, local businesses and volunteers the only green space available for healthy recreation is transforming.
In 2012, LCF made improvements to the basketball courts, lighting, fencing, playground and added a picnic shelter. More than $50,000 of in-kind labor and materials from our community made this possible.
In 2016, LCF applied for and received a $50,000 HUD Community Block Grant and a $10,000 FM Area Community grant to build a new beginners bike and skate park.
Fargo’s first public art project was birthed in the summer of 2016 through the gifted talents and leadership of nationally renowned sculptor, Brad Bachmeier. http://fargobricksculpture.strikingly.com A masterpiece of hand created bricks, mosaic tiles that represent the deep roots of the Madison families are showcased in the pieces.
Through the gifts of Hebron Brick, Houston Engineering, mason Paul Speral and 294 volunteer artists the creations were created and will be installed during the summer of 2017. The estimated value of the sculptures is $75,000.
Madison Park will become a show case of creative vitality, recreation and pride for the nearly 800 families who call it “home.”
We seek to find the least, the lost and the lonely in our community and make a positive impact in their lives. We try to soften their lives with tied fleece blankets, breakfast, school carnivals, park improvement projects and our own Pay It Forward community outreach each semester. LCF students donate money they earn to our PIF account to support people they choose in the community who may need encouragement and a hug from a teenager who cares.
Legacy students always complete service hours in each community we visit during our Affirmation and summer trips. We always pay forward the kindness YOU have given to us! We are grateful!
Volunteers can help us on Sundays with the distribution of groceries, personal hygiene items and hand-tied fleece blankets to shelters and neighbors in need.
