A new tribute wall at the Nicolet Beach shelter at Peninsula State Park in Fish Creek thanks those who are making picnics and cookouts nicer. The Friends of Peninsula State Park wanted to help those who donated between $1,000-$2,500 honor family and friends. That raised $33,500 which was matched dollar-for-dollar by a Department of Natural Resources grant. Steve Strucely, business manager for the friends group, says those funds provided some much-needed improvements in the park.
Strucely hopes the Nicolet Beach Tribute Wall will inspire donors to help fund future projects, such as a new nature center that's currently in the planning stages.
