The returning Jeffrey Lewis of Design Organization was chosen as the 2013 foundation vice president, and he’s served from 2004 to 2011 before.
Martin Sonnenberg, Executive Vice President at Task Force Tips Inc. and foundation member since 2008, was chosen as president, and Mark Ritzi of Horizon Bank was named treasurer.
The Valpo Parks Foundation is a not-for-profit group that raises money and provides opportunities to continue the parks work.
