Letter: Proud of efforts aimed at Kiwanis Park

To the Editor:

We have much to be proud of in DeKalb. The Northern Illinois University football team, the DeKalb High School Marching Band, and now, the preservation of Kiwanis Park for all of our residents.

Thank you to Jan Jacobson, the Franzenes, Bill Colvin and, of course, Bessie Chronopoulos. A special thanks to all who froze in the Kiwanis Park shelter at one of our meetings.

I want to personally acknowledge the Park District Board, DeKalb School District 428 board members and Superintendent Briscoe and his staff. I am heartened by the showing of interested citizens no matter which side of town they inhabit, and those residents who no longer have young children using the park but want it preserved for future generations.

It truly is amazing what can be accomplished when citizens work together for the betterment of all.
