A highlight of the September Nay-osh-ing Daughters of the American Revolution meeting was a visit by Dan Schlutter.
Honored guest, Dan Schlutter, Plover Village President, presented a Proclamation to the Chapter as part of Constitution Week. He then provided an overview of growth and changes that are taking place in Plover including an overview of the opening of new businesses in Crossroad Commons, various road improvements, apartment building additions, improvements to the area around Lake Pacawa and the success of the Celebrate Plover event, Plover is growing, families and businesses are attracted to the area which makes Plover a destination. The pride of having new additions, new uses for existing parks, and the celebrations that are part of holidays make Plover an ever changing area of the state. Communities working together like Stevens Point and Plover show the dedication of those who serve in government office.
