Another Consumer's Energy Tree Grant for the Village of Pewamo

The Village of Pewamo would like to thank Consumer’s Energy for their Tree Grant Program, which continues to fund the planting of trees in the Village. This allows for the replacement of trees that are mature and dying.

The Consumer’s Energy Tree Grant requires that the trees are non-invasive trees and planted in the Village right-of-way.

Many thanks to Carl Hafner for his efforts in the grant application process and to our DPW for planting and watering the trees!

Thank You to Pewamo Little League!!!

In the Spring of 2017 Pewamo Little League joined efforts with the Village of Pewamo to replace some fencing that had become dangerous and was in urgent need of replacing.

Pewamo Little League helped cover nearly 70% of the cost of the new fence.

Many hands…great results!
Thank you to the Little League Coaches, Parents and Players for their hard work in helping the Village of Pewamo have some amazing ball fields. Special thanks to Corey Smith who coordinates the spring work session and has for several years.

The hard work resulted in more than great looking fields! It builds community and teaches the kids the importance of being involved!

It takes many committed and generous people to support our parks.
Pewamo is very blessed to have so many wonderful volunteers!

Meijer Foundation

Thank you to the Meijer Foundation for their donation to the Village of Pewamo in 2014!

Funds received were used to replace fencing in the Village Park.

Dugouts Added in 2014! Hard work & Generous Donors!

The Village of Pewamo ball fields received four new dugouts thanks to the generosity of Stan & Bobbie Simon. Corey Smith and his team of coaches and volunteers were responsible for the construction, and our thanks also go out to Wieber Lumber Company of Fowler who generously provided the building materials at cost.

The dugouts are a wonderful addition to our park, adding a new element of safety and comfort for our players. The Village of Pewamo would like to extend their thanks to all of those who made this possible.

Randy Zenk receives a donation in the amount of $2500 from Andy Platte of Wilbur-Ellis in 2013. Wilbur-Ellis is making this donation to be used in the Village of Pewamo parks towards the replacement of fencing on the ball fields.

Pewamo Girl Scout Troop

The Pewamo Girl Scout Troop donated a flowering pear tree to the Pewamo Trailhead Welcome Center. They also planted the tree as a troop project in the fall of 2013. Thank you to the Girl Scouts and their leaders!

Owen Schafer

Owen Schafer provides Pewamo’s ball field with two new dugouts in 2013!

Owen was a Cub Scout and then a Boy Scout. Early on, he realized he wanted to be an Eagle Scout and follow his father’s legacy. In order to accomplish this, Owen ran a pancake breakfast with the help of family and friends. The money raised went to Austin’s House in Westphalia and towards two new dugouts at the Blossom Time Park Ball Field in Pewamo. Sports have always been a large part of Owen’s active life and he played on the ball diamonds in Pewamo. This is why he chose to construct two dugouts. Austin’s house was founded by Coach Luke Pohl who Owen played basketball for. Owen is also putting up a flag pole on the Practice/Jr. High Football field at the Pewamo-Westphalia High School.

Owen has always believed that sports say so much about a person, not only if you won but also how you played the game says who you are! It was important to give back to communities that have impacted him.
Thank you Owen for your hard work and generosity!

In 2013 trees were added to our parks!

During the spring and summer sporting seasons, many of those who come to enjoy the games find themselves wishing for the comfort of shade. Thanks to a tree planting grant from Consumer’s Energy and to generous donations received from the Pewamo Soccer Program and Pewamo Knights of Columbus the Village was able to add five new trees to the ball park this past fall.
Our special thanks go to Carl Hafner for doing the work necessary to secure this grant from Consumer’s Energy
and to the Pewamo Soccer Program and the Pewamo Knights of Columbus for their donations!
