Volunteers Brave the Cold and Snow to Close Fountain

Posted by Amy Vaughn on Thu, Nov 18, 2021

The fountain at Millennium Park on the square in downtown Bucyrus has been closed for the year. On Saturday, November 13th braving cold temperatures and a little snow, five volunteers of the non-profit organization Projects, Inc. cleaned and shut down the fountain. Pictured from left to right are Dick Hulsmeyer, Projects, Inc. President; Andy Furner, Projects, Inc. board member; Ken Cameron and Mike Hoffman, both volunteers and former Projects, Inc. board members; and Joe Shadeed, Projects, Inc. Treasurer. “We want to make sure to thank Advanced Fiber Technology. They graciously store the fountain cover over the summer when it is not in use,” said Dick Hulsmeyer. “Advanced Fiber Technology employees, Phil Taylor, Leonard Nickler and Shaine Rayborn were allowed time to haul the cover uptown and helped us install it over the fountain for winter on Monday, November 15th. It saves us time and is a big help to have those guys available.”
