Lancaster, PA – On Thursday, July 20th, the Lancaster County Commissioners, alongside members of the Lancaster County Parks & Recreation Team and the Lancaster County Community Foundation will recognized Barbara Holran and her late husband Bruce for their generous donation of the John and Anna Erb Fund in benefit of Lancaster County Parks & Recreation.
In gratitude of this donation, Lancaster County dedicated a bench in Speedwell Forge Park in honor of John & Anna Erb, Barbara & Bruce and their families. John and Anna Erb, parents of Barbara, owned a large portion of land in northern Lititz that is now a part of Lancaster County’s Speedwell Forge Park.
In its initial gift, the Lancaster County Parks & Recreation Department will receive $210,000. Each year, 4 percent of the total fund will be disbursed to Lancaster County Parks. The department plans to utilize these funds to improve Lancaster County’s 9 parks and trails.
