Memorial Playground Fund

My parents David and Merrilee (Lubka) Klemisch were both born and raised in Drayton, ND.  They had many happy times there and were married in 1981, as David served in the US Navy.  They made their home in Fargo, but still kept Drayton close to their hearts.  Merrilee passed away in 1998 after battling cancer for several years and David passed in 2014 after a sudden cardiac event.  Funds are being collected in their memory to donate new playground equipment to their hometown park.  They would enjoy seeing future generations, including their own grandchildren, have a safer, updated place to play.   Any donations are very appreciated! 

**All funds raised will be given to the Drayton Park District in David and Merrilee's name, with the specific intent of new playground equipment.
