Henderson Heritage & TourismÊ¼s fundraising campaign got a jump start when it received a $50,000 pledge over the next five years from Henderson State Bank. “It is important to Henderson State Bank to support community projects such as the Henderson Mennonite Heritage Park. It is also important to remember and honor the communityÊ¼s heritage and traditions that have helped Henderson become the successful community it is today,” said Kevin Postier, Henderson State Bank president.
In May the committee launched a capital campaign to raise $250,000 to complete their five year plan for the Henderson Mennonite Heritage Park. “This donation is the largest gift we have ever received and it will certainly make it possible for us to get a good start on completing several projects over the next five years,” said Henderson Heritage & Tourism president Shannon Siebert.
Their five year plan includes building a country Mennonite church, machine shed/shop building, railroad depot, Main Street stores, entryway and parking lot improvements and establishing a general maintenance fund. Over $100,000 has been raised through this campaign to date. On Sunday, January 16 a concluding celebration for the campaign will be held at the high school theater with special guest speaker Dr. Lauren Friesen followed by a Faspa meal in the cafeteria.
