SNBT Donation

The Oconto Chamber has received a monetary donation from Stephenson National Bank & Trust to help defray the costs of the feasibility study for a pedestrian bridge across the Oconto River. The bridge will allow two entrances to Holtwood Campground, provide an additional pedestrian walkway/bike path and allow campers from the Park easy access to businesses on the north side of the river including SNBT. The picture includes Beth Larson, Vice-President of the Chamber; Kathy Hayes, Chamber Board member, Dan Peterson, President of SNBT and Ron Hayes, Chamber President. The second picture shows the approximate location of the bridge. Monetary donations no matter how large or small are now being accepted to defray the additional costs. Grants are also being sought to help pay for this project. Oconto Chamber snbt picholtwood campground for bridge
