Ripon Noon Kiwanis Splash Pad Project

Splash Pad Project Meets Major Fundraising Goal!

On Tuesday, April 26th; the Fond du Lac County board took up a carryover budget measure, which in part proposed to secure funds that would help us bridge the remaining dollars needed to build the splash pad at Riggs County Park. That measure was approved unanimously, and so begins the next phase of our project; bringing the splash pad to actual fruition. We will of course continue to gladly accept further contributions from donors,... all of which are tax deductible, to fund all the extra special touches that are still available, but we are thrilled to say that this project is finally becoming a reality.

Our deepest and most heartfelt gratitude goes out to Al Buechel and Sam Tobias, and everyone involved with the Fond du Lac County government, whose assistance and supported of this project made this possible. To all of our gracious financial contributors, our members and volunteers who tirelessly kept the project going; and of course Danelle Smit, who started us off on this wonderful journey ~ Thank you!
