The Friends of Schiller Park raised $26,857 used for a beautification project in Schiller Park and did not receive funding for the work from the German Village Society.

The project included the design and installation of a new garden and lighting at the base of the statue of German poet, historian and playwright Friedrich Schiller and was unveiled during a rededication of Schiller's statue in September.

The group is still raising funds for creation and installation of a plaque that will include biographical information about Schiller.

A story that included information about the project in the Dec. 20 ThisWeek German Village Gazette reported incorrect information.
