On Saturday, the Redevelop Old Jasper Action Coalition (ROJAC) held a dedication ceremony for the new German American Boulevard.

Construction on the new boulevard began earlier this year and was completed within the last few days. Saturday’s dedication was part of a day-long celebration of ROJAC’s 10th anniversary.

ROJAC Board President Dave Buehler says the first ten years have been a great success for the organization. He says the organization is planning on growth in the Old Jasper area over the next ten years:

Other events as part of the celebration on Saturday included train rides and a fish fry.
