Those working on the dock were, Perry Nodsle - Nodsle Construction, Assoc. President, Morgan Nodsle, Dave Francis and Nick Francis - Francis Construction, Ed Jutz - Jutz Excavating, Chad Jutz, Mathew and Andrew Jutz, Stephen Patrick - Maplewood Construction, Jim Herman - Paul Davis Restoration & Remodeling, Dillon Herman, Rick Michaelson - Modern Heating & Plumbing, Tim Roble - LaVelle Company and Sharon Westerholm, E O.

Funds for this project had been donated to the Lake Region Builders Association by the Detroit Lakes Newspapers for Community Projects.
