Celebrating 100 years of Peninsula State Park

Peninsula State Park located in Wisconsin's beautiful Door County celebrated their 100th anniversary this year and Rome was happy to help out by sponsoring a celebratory marshmallow roast. the event took place during the WI State Park system's annual Campground Host and Volunteer Jamboree. Over 160 people were able to make it to the event.

Congrats to the State of Wisconsin for prioritizing the funding of the park system. In the era of ever tightening budgets, it's wonderful to be able to celebrate the 100th anniversary of a state park such as Peninsula.
