Peoples forum: Thanks to club, sponsors and volunteers for Ox Bow Tower fundraiser
Posted: 12/08/2012 at 1:15 am
A very special thank-you goes out to Katrina Godzisz for all of her hard work and volunteer efforts in being the main organizer of this event. The tower held very special memories for the running club and her family. It is because of her passion and the efforts of people like her that the Ox Bow Park Tower will eventually be constructed.
The goal is to raise $182,000 for the construction of a steel and wood tower that has been designed and engineered in-kind by Ancon Construction and RW Armstrong. The donation account presently holds $62,500, which consists of money transferred by Elkhart County Parks and raised by the general public over the past 21/2 years.
The Elkhart County Parks and Recreation Board would like to see construction of the tower begin in 2013. We invite community leaders, businesses, foundations, service clubs and citizens to continue to contribute to the Ox Bow Park Tower Fund. No amount is too large or too small.
For those wishing to contribute please send your tax-deductable donation to: Elkhart County Parks, Attn: Tower Fund, 211 W. Lincoln Ave., Goshen, IN 46526.
Larry Andrews, President
Elkhart County Parks Board
