What's Next? - Let's Save the "Tin Man"

With the help of so many people, Phase I (Landscaping), and Phase II (Restoration of the Pump House) have now been completed.  The last phase includes the painting and restoration of the Water Tower.  How nice the tower will look with a new coat of paint.  

It's going to take some collaboration between the Village of Oregon and the Friends of the Historic Oregon Water Tower, and will help from the community.

Donations for Phase III can be made by sending a donation:  Make Payable to:  Preserve the Water Tower Fund.  Send to the Village Hall at 117 Spring Street, Oregon, WI  53575.

Welcome Center Grand Opening - Saturday, May 16th

The grand opening of the Historic Oregon Welcome Center is fast approaching.  Saturday, May 16th, from 10-Noon.  The program is scheduled for 10:15, and the ribbon cutting will take place at 10:30.  There will be coffee, bakery items, and music in Triangle Park.

It's Almost Time to Celebrate - Grand Opening is Saturday, May 16th, from 10-Noon

We are working hard to get all the contractors scheduled to finish their work in the Pump House.  This week, a new roof was put on the building.  Next week we are pouring a new concrete floor in the front room of the building.  A gas line is scheduled to be brought to the building the 1st week in April, and the custom windows are due to be installed by mid April.

All of this is leading up to our Saturday, May 16th, from 10-Noon Grand Opening celebration.  We are expecting large attendance from the community.  There will be food, drinks, a short program at 10:30, and lots of fun.



Looking for Furniture for the new Oregon Welcome Center

As community members continue to help with the ongoing restoration of the Pump House, we are looking ahead to the Grand Opening on May 1st, 2015.  We are in need of some furniture to furnish the Welcome Center.  The style of furniture we are looking for is Mission furniture.

We would like to find a wood mission desk, chair, and book cases or shelves.  We are also looking for 2 small mission tables with 4 chairs each.

If you know of anyone who would be interested in donating the above items, or selling them at a reasonable price, please have them call us at (608) 291-0648.
