The Millenium Park fountain in downtown Bucyrus has been closed for the year. On Saturday, October 29th, volunteers of the non-profit organization, Projects, Inc., cleaned and shut down the fountain. The volunteers who assisted in emptying and power-washing the fountain are as follows: Ken Cameron, and Projects, Inc. board members Dick Hulsmeyer, Joe Shadeed, Larry Risner, and Andy Furner.

It saves us time and is a big help to have those guys available.”Read More
