Plumrose Donates 300,000 to Moberly Parks and YMCA

As part of the Hometown Strong initiative, Plumrose USA has announced an investment of $300 thousand in Moberly, to assist the Parks and Recreation Department with a handful of projects and to the YMCA for memberships. Joe Machetta, head of operations with Plumrose USA was on hand Tuesday for the check presentation.

Moberly Parks and Recreation Department Director Troy Bock says thanks to the generosity of Plumrose, this will allow three projects to move forward, including two at Rothwell Park.

The splash pad will be at Tannehill Park. Jamie Shirk, CEO of the Randolph Area YMCA says the donation is much appreciated.

Earlier this year, Plumrose USA announced its intention to build a ready-to-eat, fully cooked bacon plant in Moberly. The facility is expected to bring nearly 200 new jobs to the area and $68 million in capital investment. The company is currently hiring for a variety of roles at the Moberly facility.
