“Our father, Gail Shaw, led an effort to perform a community needs assessment for Chehalis in the 1950s.  For the next 50 years, he took great pride in working on the issues identified in that document, all designed to make Chehalis a better place to live.  One of the original needs identified was to build an outdoor community pool and improve the facilities at Recreation Park.  By supporting the project to renovate Recreation Park, we are pleased to be furthering his dream of providing the families of Chehalis with a first-class recreational area.  We hope future generations will enjoy this beautiful facility as much as we did while growing up here.”
