Lions Club donates $100k for park project



The Plymouth Lions Club and Plymouth Lions Foundation presented a gift of $100,000 to the city of Plymouth recently to assist with enhancements to Stayer Park as part of the Mullet Corridor Project. The Plymouth Lions have been planning for this project since their 50th anniversary in 2014. Lions International will be celebrating its 100-year anniversary in 2017, making the timing of this gift extra special. On hand for the ceremonial presentation at City Hall were (left to right) Mayor Donald Pohlman, Ron Erdmier, Mark Melcher, Dennis Schwartz, Charlie Hansen, Warren Wieser, Plymouth Lions Foundation President Kevin Loose, Steve Rolzin, City Administrator/Utilities Manager Brian Yerges, Marty Bonk and Plymouth Lions Club President Randy Kulow. Preliminary park design concepts have been submitted to the city. While the plans are being finalized, the Plymouth Lions will continue to look for opportunities to raise more capital through fundraising efforts like the annual Fish Boil, Green Bay Tailgate Party, and of course their famous grilled cheese sandwiches at the Sheboygan County Fair. In addition to annual fundraisers, the Plymouth Lions are seeking corporate donations for the Stayer Park project. To date, over $50,000 of additional support has been donated by corporate sponsors, helping push past the halfway point of the Lions’ goal to raise $300,000. The Lions are looking to leverage and maximize a dollar-for-dollar $300,000 matching grant from the Stayer Family Foundation, which could bring the potential total funds raised to over $600,000, as budgeted for the playground. To find out how you can contribute to this community project, please contact the Plymouth Lions Club at PlymouthWILions@gmail.com, or visit their new website at www.plymouthlionsclub.org.
