Letter To The Editor - Friends of the Parks

Friends of the LaGrange County Parks


To the Editor:

    The Friends of the LaGrange County Parks would like to thank Raber Patio of Shipshewana for providing us with a wonderful patio furniture set that contributed greatly to the success of our auction held in August at David Rogers Park as part of the Country Fair festival.

    A special thank you to Head Over Heels in the Davis Mercantile for working with us to make it possible to offer a kayak in our sale, as well. It was a very popular item!

    We also need to thank the following businesses and individuals for their generous contributions: E&S Wood Creations, Northern Nutrition, Country Style Meats, Topeka New Holland, Archbold Equipment, Save-A-Lot, Cliff Piquet, Simple Sounds, Dr. Lynn and Trenia Bowen, My Grandma's Garden, Jim Gust, Julia Wolheter, Ira Johnson, Martin Franke, Freeman P. Miller, and Pilgrim's Computer Service.

    Some donated money or merchandise, while others donated time and craftsmanship. Because of their gifts and donations, we were able to raise over $1,700, all of which will be used to enhance the facilities and programs of our local county parks.

    When you visit these people and their businesses, please tell them you appreciate their commitment to our community.

    Our county parks have wonderful facilities and staff, and we're grateful to be able to help them. Visit your parks often!
