Doggie-human fountain fundraiser at French Lake Park

The non-profit volunteer group Park Pals is raising money to install a drinking fountain for humans and dogs this summer at French Lake Park. The fountain will provide fresh water for park patrons, and ideally, should reduce the number of discarded plastic cartons often used for water. - Courtesy image
