On March 5, 2010 INS representative, J.D.Siebret and Sac County Mutual Telephone general manager, Ron Sorensen, presented a $1500.00 Iowa Network Services Charity Grant to the Odebolt Betterment Committee. This money will be used to purchase an all-weather picnic table and bench for the City park.
Our plans for this summer are to do some landscaping around the oak tree. We will be putting some curb around the tree, with landscaping fabric and 3/4 inch rock to help the run-off when it rains. The bench and picnic table will be placed in this area when finished. When we were in the park this past August, the monarch butterflies were migrating and had landed in this tree for a rest on their way south.
We are looking for a picture of what used to be on top of the granite pedestal next to the tree, or if someone knows, please tell us.. Also if anyone would like to donate to this project please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org (mailing address in the right column) or send donations to Iowa State Bank, P.O. Box 465, Odebolt, IA 51458.
We appreciate the support we have received from INS, Sac County Mutual Telephone, Mayor Ron Rex, and Senator Steve Kettering on this project.
