At the Clitherall Township 2019 Annual Meeting a motion was passed to dedicate a portion of the land owned by the township at the corner of State Highway 78 and 190th Street as a Veteran’s Park for the purpose of honoring the veterans that live and have lived in Clitherall Township. That motion was also passed by the Clitherall Township Board at their regular meeting on March 14, 2019.
As the oldest township in Otter Tail County, Clitherall Township strives to preserve its heritage and honor it’s residents, with this project we are honoring our veterans, whether they have passed away or are still living.
Clinton Bengtson has agreed to serve as chair person of the Veteran’s Park Committee and is currently working to procure funding for the project. NO township levy money will be used to build the park. It will be fully funded by donations. The total cost of the project is projected to be approximately $10,000.00. Christensen Construction are donating their time and equipment to build an approach and to level off the site. If you are interested in donating to this project or if you have the name of a veteran that lived or is living in Clitherall Township, please let Clinton Bengtson know.
