The FB ECI is a coalition of people committed to enriching the lives of young children in our community. Our children are the future, and we strive to provide them with ample opportunities to learn, play and grow. Our current project for the Fertile area is a splash pad to be installed at the city's J.D. Mason Park. It will consist of a circular cement pad approximately 30 feet in diameter, and will include 13 spray nozzles in various shapes. It will be open during the summer months at no charge to any family with young children. The City of Fertile has generously agreed to renovate the bathroom facilities and plumbing in the J.D. Mason Park in a collaborative effort to make this splash pad a reality and revitalize the park. However, with a projected cost of about $55,000, the ECI also needs the support of generous community donors to reach our goal. Please consider supporting this cause with a tax deductible donation. Please send checks to FB-ECI 210 Mill St S Fertile, MN 56540

To whom it may concern: I took a group of boys to the Splash Pad yesterday and when the boys were in the bathroom they discovered one of the most disgusting things....someone had opened up a storage cupboard and taken a large POOP inside!!! I am not only disgusted but completely disappointed that we can’t trust people to respect a beautiful new facility to be used as they would their own bathroom at home.

Locks are being added to the cupboards.
Please take this as a warning. This is NOT acceptable and we will have to take further actions to restrict the bathroom use if this is how people are going to treat it!

I am so happy to see so many enjoying this awesome space on these hot summer days, I hope one bad egg doesn’t ruin it for the rest of us!!!

Good Day!

Thanks to all who came out and helped us celebrate our Grand Opening! The weather was great and the kids had a blast. So fun to see a new and exciting place for kids (and adults 😉) to play in town!!

On behalf of the Fertile Beltrami ECI, We are happy to continue our mission:

Our Vision of the Future-
Enriching lives of young children birth to five and their families and care givers through literacy, quality childcare and family support. If we are concerned about the future of our community, we need to make long-term investments in our youngest community members by nurturing them right from the beginning. Our investments pay off in lower crime rates, less need for public assistance, better public schools, and better lives for families. We all benefit when our youngest citizens thrive, growing into adults who can give back to their communities.

Thanks for your continued support to make this project possible. Enjoy the summer! ☀️

We are so excited to announce that the underground work and the concrete work have been completed! We decided it best to wait until spring to move further with construction. We can’t thank Brian Downs enough for all the time and work he and his crew have put into this project. And Willard Swenby Construction crew for the beautiful concrete work. We look forward to the Summer of 2018!!! ☀️💦🌞💧

Check back for more details around May 2018!
