Carterville residents raise funds to improve Comet Park

CARTERVILLE, Mo. – The Carterville Park Committee in association with the Famos Italian Grill in Carterville is today hosting a fundraiser to raise money for future Comet Park improvements.

The suggested donation is $6 for a meal from the Famos Grill which includes:

  • Pasta

Officials say the fundraiser begins at 5:00 P.M. at the Carterville Community Building and money raised through donations will make it possible to add accessibility options to the park. The Committee also hopes to add sidewalks that span the pavilion as well as park bathrooms.
