Organizers close to goal to rebuild Ox Bow Park tower


Another fundraiser was held in Goshen Sunday to help rebuild a piece of the community that burned down a few years back.

A walk and run was held at Ox Bow County Park. That's where the observation tower at the park was destroyed by arson in 2010.

Through a number of fundraisers over the past few years, organizers have $1600 left to raise to reach its project goal of more than $130,000 dollars.

"Our deadline is to get the rest in by May 1st. That's when we have the Elkhart County Community Foundation giving us a matching grant of $32,000 and I'm sure we'll achieve that goal," says Superintendent of Operations, Ronda DeCaire.

The tower was not covered by Elkhart County's insurance. The Park and Recreation Board agreed the tower could be rebuilt if the community was willing to raise the funds.
