Silt Park success

Alice Boulton

The Silt Historical Society has closed the park for the winter months. Please note, we will still be available for special events. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the many organizations and people who have made this summer season such a success. Without their help we could not continue to operate. The members and donors who have contributed their time, money and historic treasures are the backbone that we rely on so heavily for the continued growth and operation of the park.

We would also like to pay an especially big thank-you for some special help: Casey Concrete, O’Brien Concrete Pumping, Flag Sand and Gravel, the town of Silt and Jimmy Carlton for the new handicapped ramps, Don Loutham for the ramp railings, Vail Associates for the side-delivery rake and threshing machine. Lest they think we forgot them, all of the volunteers who provide maintenance help, make Chautauqua and Silt Heyday happen, and serve as tour guides.

Finally, we want to thank the many of you who have brought family, friends and out-of-town guests to visit us. That is what makes it all worthwhile. We hope you will come back and see us next year and spread the word so others will also visit our early-1900s park and gain an appreciation for what the settlers of this area endured and enjoyed.

To set up a special event during the winter months, please call me at 876-2668

Thank you,

Alice Boulton
