Tomorrow, we get to celebrate one of the most important things to us – people who make Fort special. And Mabel Schumacher, Erin Patterson, and the Fort Atkinson Generals organization are easy folks to celebrate, having given our community so much in so many ways. We are indebted to them for moving us towards A Better Fort Atkinson.
We welcome the community to join us Thursday at Jones Park where the three recipients will be honored for Making Fort Special at an awards reception from 5 to 7 p.m., with an awards presentation at 5:30 p.m. The Generals cash-only concession stand will be open for the purchase of food and beverages, and the Foundation will be providing complementary cake for dessert.
Jones Park is such a fitting location to celebrate philanthropy. The park has been home to so much joy and community celebration through many festivals, ballgames, and everyday park adventures. FACF is proud to have helped the City of Fort Atkinson, WI-Government support Jone’s Park with several grants over the years for everything from the stadium seating, expanded concession stand, fencing, electronic sign and entry way pillars, to the park equipment. We are so thankful to our donors for investing in the growth of our community.
We hope to see you tomorrow to celebrate these wonderful champions of Fort Atkinson in a park that embodies so much of our mission.
