If you haven't checked out Joe Pietrek, Jr., Memorial Park lately, it's a great time to do so. The park, which opened April 15 and will remain open through Nov. 30, features a number of significant improvements.

The most eye-catching upgrade has been the transformation of Kloss Shelter, which has a new addition that is fully equipped with a new cement floor, five overhead doors that be easily opened when the weather is suitable and closed when it's not. This is a perfect spot for family reunions, graduations, receptions and other gatherings. The park's restroom facility is right next door for your convenience.

The kitchen area of the Kloss Shelter is getting a facelift, too, as remodeling continues and will soon include car siding on the ceiling and walls from 12 different tree species. The kitchen area also will include classroom space featuring instructional materials as well as a fish exhibit containing seven different species.

Improvement plans are also under way for the lower shelter at the park, which is completely enclosed and has screened windows that open.

There remains plenty of work to be done, and we would welcome individuals or groups who are interested in volunteering their time or donating to different park projects. So come check us out, even it's for an hour, as it's your park to explore and enjoy.
