Hosted by the Park committee, many volunteers assisted with serving root beer floats and providing bars.
Mark Sweeney of Winner was the winner of the quilt raffle also held as part of the fund raiser. The funds raised will pay for the park upkeep throughout the year.
The park was built with donations in memory of many former Presho business people. There is a memorial board inside the gazebo that contains a list of those who contributed.
It’s a beautiful park, with the gazebo, lush grass and blooming flowers. Stop by next time you drive by and sit and enjoy.
