Members of the Plover Kiwanas Club on Nov. 29 show off a $2,000 check — the group’s donation to the Friends of Schmeeckle Reserve.
The group met for lunch at The Cottage Cafe, 2900 Post Rd. in Plover.
The money goes towards a fundraiser for a new amphitheater inside Schmeeckle, which was announced in September.
The new space will be used for community programs, plays, live music and other performances.
The cost of the amphitheater has been estimated at $235,000 dollars. The group will raise about $110,000 through cash donations, with the remainder coming through in-kind services and materials.
The Rettler Corporation, a Stevens Point-based landscaping and architecture firm has already donated time to develop a conceptual model of the amphitheater.
Construction is planned for the summer of 2018.
Donations can be made online, by mail or in-person. Visit Schmeeckle Reserve’s website for information on the project and how to donate.
