Here to serve
The I-95th US Army Reserve Unit arrived in Sigourney on Friday, June 6 to begin the community work weekend at the Town Square Park. Mark Seeley and M&M Construction along with volunteers had prepared the site for the construction of the shelter house, picnic tables and cement work.
The weekend started out beautiful and several area youth joined the volunteers to help bring the long awaited vision of the Town Square Park to life. Saturday turned rainy and some of the projects weren’t able to be completed. The Town Square Park Committee has worked through the winter to raise $145,000 of its $200,000 goal to complete the project. For more information, contact a member of the Town Square Park Committee or MidWestOne Bank. Phase I, which includes the shelter and all the concrete work and landscaping, was set to be completed (weather permitting). Phase II, which includes the playground and veterans memorial, will be completed at a later date as fundraising allows.
