    It was located in 2013, http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...Fountain-found , and now they are taking efforts to restore it: http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...light=fountain

    I would like to see it in operation again next time I go to South Bend.

    I am sure there are many like myself who want to see this foundation returned completely refurbished and working and available for the public and SDC members to view and even picnic around. When the fountain was finally rediscovered, many of the parts and pieces were missing. Hard work by many in South Bend discovered that the original molds and the original manufacturer still existed so yesterday the foundation was loaded on a truck and sent to Ohio to not only to be refurbished but also to have all of the missing pieces remade. Once done it will be brought back to South bend and reassembled in the park mentioned in the article.

    If you want to help in this project the South Bend Park foundation would appreciate your financial support. I want to se eit returned and I have donated to help make that happen. Please help them too.
    See you in the future as I write about our past
