Hoffman Hall in Prairie du Chien was recently the recipient of a $25,000 donation from Bruce Welsch, an avid swimmer at the recreation center’s pool. The donation was contributed in honor of his parents, Chuck and Bernice Welsch.
In his tribute to them, Bruce wrote, in part:

“Thank you for your love, caring and guidance. Thank you for supporting me in high school, college and when joining the Armed Forces. Thank you for being great role models. Thank you for your endless sacrifices. You may be gone but will never be forgotten.”

Chuck and Bernice have been honored with a plaque on the “Leaders” donor wall at Hoffman Hall and the donation will be earmarked for Hoffman Hall Improvements.

“This is a very gracious and heartfelt gift from Bruce and  it benefits the entire community,” Prairie du Chien Parks and Recreation Director Mike Ulrich said. “On behalf of the city of Prairie du Chien, we appreciate the significance of this donation as a lifelong memory on their behalf.”
