Nearly 300 parade goers quenched their thirst at the Historic Hose Tower in the heart of the Village of Greendale following the July 4th parade this past Saturday.
The third annual “Lemonade after the Parade” was sponsored The Greendale Historical Society at the Hose Tower. The event showcased the re-purposed 1939 building and Tower which is nearing completion as a Community Center and gathering place for the Village.
When the interior is completed this fall, groups of 100 or more will be able to use the carpeted, air-conditioned, restroom equipped Layton State Bank Community room for a variety of gatherings and events.
“Thanks to our many donors, sponsors, Village leaders, and friends, the Hose Tower will soon be ready” said Historical Society president, Ted Mainella.
Construction work on the interior of the building will begin this week. Completion slated for late summer or early fall of this year. For more information, please visit www.greendalehistoricalsociety.org.
