(Vicksburg Visit 4) Oswalt Park Restoration Moving Forward

A Crowdfunding effort to fund the restoration of Vicksburg's Oswalt Park will end on October 15, 2021. In the meantime, efforts are underway to secure a matching grant from the State of Michigan which will double the funds raised. Until the deadline, Crowdfunding donations are still being accepted – and will be doubled, thanks to the grant from the state.

In Vicksburg Visit Episode 4, the Village's Alex Lee talks about the effort, the state matching funds – and “Uncle Jim” Oswalt and his legacy – the man for whom Oswalt Park is named.
