Wausau, Wis. (December 2, 2021) Peoples State Bank announced a $15,000 donation to the city of Rhinelander’s Hodag Park improvement project. The money is earmarked for a new amphitheater and entertainment area to be built on the edge of Boom Lake within Hodag Park.
“When completed, these improvements will draw thousands of people to Hodag Park, enhancing Rhinelander’s businesses and economy,” said Craig Lau, Peoples State Bank northern market president. “Peoples is proud to make this donation to help fund this community-oriented space.”
When completed, the project will provide gathering space for ceremonies, festivals, weddings, and reunions, as well as music performances, art fairs, and flea markets. The amenities will include a pavilion, amphitheater, splash pad, and improved seating and parking areas.
“We envision a weekly concert or event series during summer months,” said Zach Vruwink, Rhinelander administrator. “I’m happy to have Peoples on board with this project, especially considering their long-time support of the city.”
Peoples State Bank looks for ways to give back to the communities it serves. Two years ago, the bank provided funding for the Hodag Dome project. Bank employees routinely volunteer for school, sports, non-profit, and other civic organizations in Rhinelander.
