OSAKIS — A three-way joint project between the Osakis Lions Club, Osakis VFW and the City of Osakis has recently been completed at Bill Sliper Lions Park at the south entrance of town.

The improvements include a 16-by-30-foot concrete area with two metal picnic tables, including a handicapped-accessible table, located at the VFW memorial.

Electricity and water are available for picnics. This also provides a resting place for those visiting the memorial to honor loved ones whose names and branches of the military are featured here. Plans are underway this fall to plant shade trees next to the picnic area so visitors can more fully enjoy their experience.

Special thanks for this project go to the Osakis Lions Club, the Osakis VFW and the City of Osakis.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
