Established in October, 2004 in the name of Brian Trelease who served 21 years on the Park Board, the Trelease Program Assistance Fund provides assistance, as funds are available, to qualified residents who might not otherwise be able to participate.
As the Recreation Department operates independently of the tax-based budget through a revolving fund, all formal programs requiring a registration form also require an associated user fee. All donations made to the Longmeadow Parks and Recreation Department in the name of the "Trelease Programs Assistance Fund" will be used to fund any unpaid portion of program registrations for eligible children and families.
Donations may be made through checks payable to the Longmeadow Parks and Recreation Department, care of the Trelease Fund. Checks can be mailed to the Longmeadow Parks and Recreation Department, 735 Longmeadow Street, Longmeadow, MA 01106.
