A $5,000 grant from the Windom Area Foundation to the Windom Lions Club shelter received official approval at last week’s city council meeting.
The shelter, which is targeted for Tegels Park at Cottonwood Lake, would be designed to hold a stage and larger community events. Initial plans are to provide more cover and protection from the weather elements.
Once the project is fully funded, it will be owned and maintained by the city of Windom. For more on this effort, watch future editions of the Cottonwood County Citizen and Citizen eEdition.
