  • The Crookston Splash Park's bottom line continues to grow, and the next big step is picking a place in the community to locate it.
    During Crazy Days last Thursday, Ken Longtin and his grandchildren finished up their $4,000 donation to the Splash Park with a check presentation outside The Longtin Agency. Crookston Splash Park co-leader Shirley Iverson said that Longtin signed up for the monthly automatic deduction program.
    "For the past 18 months he has donated to the splash park by having the money electronically withdrawn from his account...painless, easy, tax deductible, and he is at his goal of donating $4,000," Iverson explained.
    The Crookston Pioneer 100s Kiwanis also added a $500 donation last Thursday at a meeting at RBJ's Restaurant.
    The Splash Park Committee will be attending the July 28 Crookston City Council meeting to discuss possible locations for the park.
    "We hope to get the ball rolling and something built yet this summer," Iverson told the Times.
