Fond du Lac Reservation Receives Grant From Super Bowl Cmte.
FOND DU LAC RESERVATION, Minn. – Some more outdoor opportunities are coming to the Fond du Lac Reservation.
The Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee was there today to award a grant worth $85,000 to fund three different community projects.
There will now be an expansion of a walking path that goes toward the Fond du Lac Tribal Center, along with upgrades to their community gardens and a renovation of an ice rink.
One of the big reasons the Tribe is so excited about the grant, is it will get kids to participate in healthier activities.
“I’d rather have them go out there and play ice hockey or boot hockey instead of having them indoors playing video games, or watching TV, or playing on the computer,” said Bryan Bosto, Brookston Community Center manager.
Others in the community see it as a way to expand Fond du Lac’s sport’s legacy, which includes some high-level basketball players. They are confident that the new rink will also bring acclaim to the Tribe’s hockey program as well.
The Super Bowl Committee is providing 52 grants to 52 community projects leading up to Super Bowl 52 Feb. 4 in Minneapolis.
