They had help from park neighbors Katherine and Jacqueline
Crowell. Dennis Reves also labored in the project.
The park is overseen by the Logan County Board and paint was

The Gaydoshes have received permission from the county board to
donate the coins thrown into the fountain to the Robert Graue Marine
