PARK EQUIPMENT DONATION
The Village of Hortonville would like to commend resident Darlene Bosin's charitable efforts towards improving the quality of life for all the citizens in our community. Darlene's generous donation is being used to upgrade the playground equipment in both Miller and Alonzo Park. Village personnel are currently rebuilding the playground in Miller Park, installing new swing sets, including a new toddler swing for infants, new safer playground edging, as well as installing sidewalk access to the equipment. The Village of Hortonville and Darlene Bosin have teamed up on projects before at the new Municipal Services Center. She helped make it possible to construct an educational trail that combines with library programs to help children to learn, grow, and explore their natural environment.

WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH THE TREES?
The Village of Hortonville lost a great number of trees along Main Street, in our parks, and at many private residences during the storm on August 7, 2013. The Village's Tree Board is currently working with tree experts to develop a plan for the replanting of our urban forest and the re-beautification of our home town. The tree replacement program was started in the spring of 2014. We would like to remind everyone about the Memorial Tree Program. Please contact the Administration office at 779-6011 for more information.
