Past Projects

Lake antoine Park Partners

After the devastating storm in June of 2015, Lake Antoine Park suffered substantial amount of damage to the area with high winds taking down over 200 trees. Over the past few years, improvements have been made to the quality of the park. Community members have been working hard to create a better environment for the upcoming generations to enjoy. This rehabilitation has been a long and tedious journey. In 2018, BOSS Snowplow partnered with the Lake Antoine Park Partners providing funds and manpower for a community volunteer day in which employees and community members worked hand in hand to plant trees, install a tot lot, improve the entrance and install a new sign. The Toro Foundation also provided financial support through a volunteer grant. 

Friends of Niagara Memorial Park Project

In 2017, BOSS Snowplow partnered with the Friends of Niagara Memorial Park Project to improve the state of the Niagara Memorial Park. BOSS Snowplow provided funds and manpower to assist in the build and installation of the playground equipment. The Toro Foundation also supported the project with a volunteer grant.  

Kiwanis 25 Location park

The first of the BOSS Snowplow community projects occurred in 2016 in partnership with the Kiwanis Club of Iron Mountain-Kingsford. The Kiwanis Club had a plan and vision to restore the 25 Location Park. Fundraisers had taken place and the group had gained momentum in the community. BOSS Snowplow joined forces and provided financial support and manpower for the community volunteer day in which the playground equipment was installed, and several landscape improvements were made.
