Thursday, April 25, 2019
AARP Wisconsin joined Deer Park officials at a ceremony to celebrate three new automatic door openers that were installed at the library and community/senior center this year thanks to an AARP 2018 Community Challenge Grant.
Ribbon-cutting ceremonies were held April 7. “We are absolutely thrilled to be able to help fund a local community project like this that will result in all Deer Park area citizens – including those with mobility issues or other special needs – having full and unabated access to these municipal facilities,” said Sam Wilson, State Director of AARP Wisconsin. “We couldn’t dream up a better use for this grant money.”
The Village of Deer Park was awarded the $11,600 grant to provide funding for the installation of three automatic door openers at its community/senior center and library. The library has two entrance doors, an outer one into the vestibule and another from the vestibule into the library. The community center has a single entrance door.
