Dog Park gets anonymous donation
By Joseph Slacian
 
The Wabash Dog Park came one step closer to reality last week.
 
The park received an anonymous $15,000 donation on Wednesday, July 13, according to Gary Henderson, who is heading the group that is working to create the park.
 
“If we can get the fence up this fall, then we’ll at least have a park,” Henderson told The Paper of Wabash County. “It won’t be completed until next spring, probably. But I’m optimistic; we’ll at least have a fence up and the park will be usable.”
