HGM ANNOUNCES SUPPORT FOR THE
DREAM PLAYGROUND RE-IMAGINED PROJECT
HGM donates $10,000 to support the Dream
Playground Re-Imagined project. “The photo to the

to the Dream Playground committee.”
“HGM is a family founded company that is now employee owned. We still carry the family spirit in our culture. With this culture, we understand the importance in spending quality time with our kids. As an engineering firm, we see the mental growth and problem solving skills learned when kids interact with complex play structures like the Dream Playground,” said Ron Tekippe, president for HGM Associates, Inc. “HGM staff were involved in the building of the original playground, and we will be involved in this impressive rebuild of the Dream Playground Re-Imagined. The employees of HGM are proud to work for a Council Bluffs firm that is truly dedicated to our community, and we are proud to make this donation to the project.”
The Dream Playground Re-Imagined project strives to preserve the dream of children from 25 years ago while incorporating the dream of children today. In addition, the new playground structure will be compliant with ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) regulations, making the playground accessible to children with all abilities.
The new playground structure will be built in six days, July 24-29. This construction effort will require thousands of community volunteers working together to accomplish our final Dream Playground Re-Imagined. Individuals, families, groups, organizations, and businesses are encouraged to sign up for volunteer shifts or make donations at

Local Organizations Celebrate E-Week
Bill Glismann, PE, a member of the Society of American Military
Engineers, said several student outreach programs had events in
February where grade school through high school students
competed against each other in numerous robotics activities and
competitions. Bill says that E-Week is important in promoting what
engineering does and promoting the need for engineers in the
future. He says “Our hope is that through this outreach to students,
they will see that engineering careers are interesting and rewarding
and choose to become an engineer.”
