On Saturday, May 25, 2019 a dedication ceremony will take place in Leo Ehrhardt Central Park. The non-profit organization R.I.S.E. has raised money to purchase a bronze plaque honoring Mr. Leo Erhardt and dedicating the park in his name. The ceremony will take place at 10 AM and we hope everyone comes out to celebrate with us. It is the hope of the Town and RISE that this park will become a central meeting place for kids to play. Mr. Leo was Mayor of Simmesport for 40 years and dedicated much of his life to the Town. If you have any photos of Mr. Leo you could like to share, please send copies to us or we can scan them in for you if you drop by the Town Hall.
