Pictured is Merchants Bank President Anthony Guzzo and Jack Krage, chair of Every Child’s Dream – Winona, as Guzzo presents a check for $15,000 toward the fundraising effort. This donation is the first stage of support from Merchants Bank. The second installment of $10,000 will be donated after January 1, 2019.
The three Winona Lions Clubs appreciate the strong commitment to the effort to construct an all-inclusive playground near the bandshell in Lake Park. The city has 27 parks and 14 playgrounds, yet none meet the needs of the physically or developmentally challenged. The Lions plan to replace the equipment from the playground that no longer meets ADA requirements and replace it with play equipment that is accessible to everyone.
The Lions wish to thank Merchants Bank for its generosity and wish to stress that although the Lions clubs are getting closer to their goal, there is still a need for additional assistance. Every donation, whether large or small, is a step toward bringing this dream to reality.
Please send you donations to Every Child’s Dream – Winona, 104 East Fourth Street, Winona, Minn., 55987, Attn.: Jack. Also, visit the Lions on Facebook and like the page!
