Leadership Dakota County alumni to raise $250,000 for Siouxland Freedom park

An iconic building along the riverfront in South Sioux City will soon see completion thanks to a dedicated group of local volunteers.
Alumni from Leadership Dakota County have made it their mission to raise $250,000 to complete the interior of the Interpretive Center at Siouxland Freedom Park, a museum dedicated to remembering veterans and their contributions.

The building known as Siouxland Freedom Park’s Interpretive Center is now built on the grounds of Siouxland Freedom Park, located at 1801 Veterans Drive, on the Missouri River in South Sioux City, Nebraska.  The shell of the Interpretive Center was complete two years ago, but construction on the inside of the building is still waiting to be complete. 

Diana Kincaid, who is leading the group with Mike LaCroix in the fundraising efforts, says, “Our Leadership Dakota County Alumni group, 15 years strong, had been looking for a way to give back to our community.  We voted to adopt Siouxland Freedom Park and lead the effort to fundraise the needed monies to complete the building.”
It’s hoped construction on the inside of the Interpretive Center will begin by 2021, if not sooner.  The Siouxland Interpretive Center will feature displays and state-of-the-art electronic exhibits showcasing veterans and the sacrifices so many have made. 
The Leadership Dakota County (even across county and state lines) group is open to ANYONE who would like to help support Siouxland Freedom Park to join their committee in fundraising for this cause.  There are also breakout committees in fundraising, event planning, facilities and marketing. 
If you are interested in joining this cause, please contact Mike LaCroix at 402.412.5221 or
Siouxland Freedom Park is home to the only half-scale exact replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial located in Washington, D.C.  The park is also the backdrop for special events and observances featuring veterans. 

Alumni members of Leadership Dakota County announced they are dedicated to raising $250,000 to support Siouxland Freedom Park’s Interpretive Center. 
The group’s goal is to raise the funds by Veterans Day 2020 (November 11th).
