The project was completed using a grant from Star Prairie Fish and Game to purchase materials. The village was able to procure materials for $200 less than the maximum of the $1835 grant request, and have enough left over lumber to replace decking on a couple of the fishing docks along the Apple River in the park next spring.
Village employees Amanda Engesether, Nathan Licht and Martin Schwan were instrumental in the logistics helping get this project moving
Big thanks to all volunteers!
