Dan ODonnell interviewed Don Schwartz, Presidnet of the Hales Corners Park & Pool, on July 11, 2017 about the Alyson Dudek International Ice Center and the Jerry and Dorothy Holz family shelter projects coming up in Hales Corners Park
The non- profit Friends of Hales Corners Park & Pool which I co-founded 14 years ago had our projects, the Alyson Dudek International Ice Center and the Jerry and Dorothy Holz family shelter recommended for approval by the Village of Hales Corners consultant. Now the final plans will go the Village Plan Commission on June 19 for final approval. Contractor bids are due on May 19 for the project.
The Milwaukee County Parks Department approved the project back on April 11 after seven years of back and forth.
Special thanks to the Milwaukee County Parks Department and Plunkett Raysich Architects (PRA) and their MEP's for all there assistance
to get the Friends to this point. RA is the best of the best in southeastern Wisconsin.
These projects will be a tremendous addition to Hales Corners Park, the Village of Hales Corners and to the surrounding communities.

Monday, March 27, 2018: Special thanks to Friends of Hales Corners Park & Pool volunteers, Don and Dave Paulus, Michael Zens, Tony Campione and Mike Jansen who met at Hales Corners Park in 30 degree weather yesterday morning to fold up the ice rink liner and hauled to the Hales Pool House basement. One of the liner braces is still frozen solidly to the ground with a white towel over it. Please see the attached pictures. Next event coming up for the Friends of Hales Corners Pool Park & Pool is the 16th Annual Earth Day cleanup of Hales Corners Park & Pool on Saturday, April 21, 2018.
Sunday, March 4, 2018: The Village of Hales Corners and the surrounding communities enjoyed over two months of ice skating this winter season from Dec 42, 2017 - Feb 25,2018, but due to fluctuating weather of warm to cold, it was time to start packing up for the year.
The liner and half of the small triangle braces remain frozen, so we will need to return on another date to remove. Special thanks to all of our volunteers...
Monday, Feb 26, 2018: Great news today! The Friends of Hales Corners Park & Pool received a $25,000.00 donation in the mail. This contribution puts us a little closer to constructing the Alyson Dudek International / Community Ice Rink and the Jerry and Dorothy Holz Family Shelter projects in Hales Corners Park! Ethan Monson-Dupuis, a 2009 Whitnall HS graduate and Track/Cross Country runner, tragically lost his battle to this scourge on 12-27-16. Funds raised from this annual event will go to others' going through the same, in hopes that this epidemic can be eradicated.
