NEW ULM — Bank Midwest donated $10,000 to the German Park Amphitheater project Monday. This $10,000 will be used as part of $100,000 matching grant.

With this donation, Bank Midwest will have a permanent inscription on the amphitheater when completed. Bank Midwest is the first financial institution partner on the project. Park and Recreation Director Tom Schmitz hopes others will join in to fund the final portion of the amphitheater. Schmitz said the shade structure is the only unfunded part of the project and could cost up to $125,000.

The German Park Amphitheater project is 10 years in the making.
