Alliant Energy and Black Hills Energy Grants
Thank you to the Alliant Energy Community Grant, Dyersville Area Community Foundation, and Black Hills Energy Grant we are able to update the swing frame and swings at Veterans Square Park as well as get a much-wanted Expression Swing.

We sincerely appreciate this funding and know moms/dads/grandparents and children will get a lot of joy out of this new addition.
The project will start sometime in the spring and we will need volunteers to help us assemble this, please be on the lookout for future posts!
