Schwichtenberg’s $200,000 gift will preserve city pool for future
"Art and I talked about this several times ... He liked the idea of solar heating, innovative improvements and enhancements ..."
- Eric Angvall, Lester Prairie mayor
Lester Prairie, Minnesota, USA - The late Arthur Schwichtenberg was a major supporter of the Lester Prairie pool during his lifetime, and a $200,000 bequest from the Arthur Schwichtenberg trust will continue that support for generations to come.
The bequest was made on the condition that the funds be used only for pool improvements, and not for routine maintenance or day-to-day operation of the pool.
