Relocating to Thomson
Are you ready to slow down and relax a little? Do you just need a place where you can take a deep breath, look around, and kick up your feet for a while?
CHECK IT OUT! The next time you drive past the Lions Club Park, take a moment to look at the bright red merry-go-round! It is ADA accessible and already a hit with kids of all ages. While you’re there, notice the new water fountain generously donated by Elkay Manufacturing of Savanna. Thanks to Scott Gallentine for coordinating this amazing new feature. Not only is it wheelchair accessible; it has a bottle filler and a ground level doggie bowl for our fur babies.
The generosity of our local businesses and residents is overwhelming. Thanks to all who donated!
