Peoples State Bank donates $15,000 for park improvement project

Wausau, Wis.-based Peoples State Bank recently donated $15,000 for the city of Rhinelander’s Hodag Park improvement project, which will include a new amphitheater and entertainment center on the edge of Boom Lake. 

The project is expected to provide gathering space for festivals, weddings, ceremonies and reunions, as well as music performances, flea markets and art fairs. Amenities will include a pavilion, splash pad and improved parking and seating areas. 

“When completed, these improvements will draw thousands of people to Hodag Park, enhancing Rhinelander’s businesses and economy,” said Craig Lau, Peoples State Bank northern market president. “Peoples is proud to make this donation to help fund this community-oriented space.”

“We envision a weekly concert or event series during summer months,” added Zach Vruwink, Rhinelander administrator. “I’m happy to have Peoples on board with this project, especially considering their long-time support of the city.”
