COEUR d'ALENE - Hey, dogs of Coeur d'Alene - you ready for this? Your playground at McEuen Park is officially on.
That's right. The Kootenai County Dog Association has raised the $67,000 it will cost to give you the park of your dreams. You can thank a long list of generous supporters, including Dale Schuman at Panhandle State Bank's Trust and Wealth Division, KCDPA Chair Bob Mcdonald and community volunteers Dorothy Hatch, Robert Knetchel, Bonnie Warwick, Terry White, Jon Busath and Karen Olsen. Save an especially enthusiastic wag for the anonymous donor who contributed $35,000 to meet the fundraising goal.
