Ice Cream Social In Dorchester Park Is Sunday, 6 p.m.

Just like the good old days, this Sunday, July 9, there will be a community ice cream social at Dorchester's City Park.

The ice cream social will be hosted by Dorchester Community Foundation Fund as a fundraiser for its splash pad project.

The ice cream social will be a freewill offering event.

The Times has learned that the Foundation has already raised around $90,000 for the splash pad, thanks to individual donations from area residents and businesses, as well as large donation from the Dorchester United Methodist Church, the Village of Dorchester, and the Robert Havlat family memorial. 

Dorchester's splash pad is expected to be a larger-scale splash pad, we are told, with the ability to expand it even more in the future.  The project will be located in Dorcheter's City Park and could be under construction by early next spring, if fund raising is adequate. That's according to an e-mail sent to the Times several weeks ago.

If you would like to help speed the project along, donations are encouraged now.  Send donations to:  Dorchester Community Foundation Fund, c/o Peg Bergmeyer,101 Washington Ave., Dorchester, NE  68343.

The Dorchester Community Foundation Fund is a non-profit subsidiary of the Nebraska Community Foundation, so all donations are 100% tax deductible.
