DCP Thanks Triangle Owner for Donation and Continued Support

“The Darke County Park District is thankful for all of the support they receive in many forms from local citizens, property owners and merchants”, stated Deb Shiverdecker, Administrative Assistant. Just recently the Park District held their annual Prairie Days festival with over 5,000 people attending. Prairie Days is a free family event which combines lots of fun and learning all in one place. Along with historical interpreters who demonstrate how life was in the period around the late 18th century, the volunteers and staff plan crafts, host music groups, local Civic Theater performances and a local art exhibit and so much more for the enjoyment of the public.

For quite a few years now local property and business owner (The Triangle Dance Club), Kelly Wilson, has allowed the Park District to park their Prairie Days visitors in their parking areas for free. The Park District then contracts the Greenville Transit to shuttle people to the Prairie Days event. Park District Director, Roger Van Frank stated, “Without this assistance the Park District would never be able to serve such large numbers of people at this very popular event as our parking is so limited at Shawnee Prairie Preserve.” The Darke County Park District would like to thank Kelly Wilson for the Triangle’s gracious donation and their long-time continued support of the community!
