Community Club discusses Big Give projects

Boone County Big GiveThe annual Boone County Big Give was discussed at the Petersburg Community Club meeting on Monday, Oct. 3, 2016.
Committee member Tina Stokes asked if the community club had a definite idea what their project would be. She said there will be 23 organizations in every community in Boone County involved. She felt the event was awesome.
One previous suggestion had been new blue benches for the park. Town Board member Tina Henn noted the village will now receive a grant for those.
An additional suggestion was a shelter for the stage.
The idea of a circuit work out area was again addressed, but secretary Joelle Feeney felt she did not have adequate time to prepare a plan and get cost estimates in two weeks.
Eric Petsche does have a catalog with equipment prices she could look at.
Members asked how the circuit would work. It could incorporate the two miles around Petersburg for a run and have exercise stops at various locations. Some stops could be in the park.
