Snyder Dam II 20th Anniversary (Picnic - 26 July 2015)

By Todd Schmidt

At the Town of Hewett annual picnic July 26, participants were reminded Snyder Dam II is now 20 years old.

With an approximate attendance of 72, ages ranged from 6 months to 94 years. Many brought out old blue “Dam” buttons that have been in storage for 20 years, printed “2015” on them and made sure everyone who attended the picnic sported a button.

Former State Sen. Dave Zien was one of the most influential “Dam People”. Zien was instrumental in getting state funding for Snyder Dam II

Zien attended the July 26 picnic. He encouraged people to not always accept what government hands down to them but to work to accomplish what can be a benefit for many.

Clark County Supervisor William Neville and Clark County Parks and Programs manager Sean O’Donnell also attended the event. Town of Hewett Chairperson Hap Eddy listed a number of businesses located within and near the township.

The picnic included games for adults and children, an abundance of food and great conversation.

“What a good way to visit and get to know your neighbors,” Town of Hewett Supervisor JoAnn Wren said. “We hope to see everyone next year.”

Wren said a number of businesses, government entities and individuals supported the event, including: Kut n’ Dried Millwork, Wildcat Inn, Schnabel Carpentry, Country Woods Hair Salon, Sniteman Pharmacy, Speakeasy Saloon, Neillsville Gun Club, Clark County Forestry and Parks, Harold Eddy, Verna Zimmerman and Mike and Elsie Statz.
