Officials of St. Martin Heritage Park on CTH T near Hayton held their annual dedication ceremony on Sunday afternoon.

Each year individuals and/or families donate a variety of items and services to the continuing development of the park and they are recognized during this ceremony. This year seven recognitions were given as Roger Woelfel emceed the program. He started with a general “cover all” for all the people who do even the smallest of things in the course of a year at the park—everything from the “weed fairies” who show up to tend to the gardens to people who honk and wave as they drive past. Another item dedicated on Sunday is the new labyrinth made of stones. Don Pfister donated rocks and the hauling of gravel and sand for the base of the maze which is about a quarter mile in length when walked in its entirety. The labyrinth is in memory of Linus and Rose Mary Woelfel. An evergreen tree in memory of Al and Mary Lou Brown was dedicated, as was one from Mike Thurwachter in memory of his late wife Sarah. He donated another evergreen in memory of his in-laws, John and Alice Bosma. A blue spruce tree in memory of Delores and Leo Krebsbach was donated by Rose Mary Woelfel. Rich and Sue Kolbe and Rogene Biese were joined by an anonymous donor in making the new blacktop drive a reality. Roger Woelfel referred to all the donations as “more jewels in the crown” of St. Martin Heritage Park.
