In a solemn, inspirational ceremony, the recently landscaped Memorial Park — as it has become known — was dedicated Friday evening, July 11, during New Richland’s Farm and City Days.

The new hospice tree — donated by Mary Ignaszewski and family, and the bench that was donated in memory of Tommy Bruzek by the NR Fire Department 10 years ago — were the main focus.

Gail Schmidt of the New Richland Area Foundation, which donated $2,200 toward the project, was the first to speak.

With many construction issues looming, it’s not likely at this time


Staff Writer

Is the NRHEG School Board ready to consider the feasibility of a new gym for NRHEG?

Maybe, maybe not.

Discussion was intense at the close of Monday’s board meeting in Ellendale, as members (board chair Rick Schultz was absent) struggled to get their heads around a new project close on the heels of the renovation in New Richland – a job which is still not complete and has unsolved problems.

The Building and Grounds Committee has conferred with D.L.R. Group architects in the matter, and they were given a price of $15,000 for an initial design study, and about $38,000 for a proposal, half of which would be returnable.
