The Cultural Commons is an interactive garden and education space to be constructed within Pfiffner Pioneer Park in Stevens Point, Wisconsin.
The Commons will provide a place to learn, reflect, engage and enjoy. Further, it will be a place to celebrate our cultural diversity in historic and contemporary times.
Please indicate Culture Commons Project if you donate on WNP website, paver and bench information can be found on the Support page.
Dear Members and Friends of W/NP,
Through 50 years of Partnership we’ve come a long way. The age of technology has made it easier to stay connected and work together. Each year new projects are developed while existing programs successfully move forward. W/NP could not exist without the many volunteers who offer their time, talent and treasure.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Mahatma Ghandi

Each year the Wisconsin Lions Camp in Rosholt, WI supplies refurbished eyeglasses to W/NP and the WI Lions for distribution in Nicaragua. Nearly 10,000 people are evaluated and fitted with eyeglasses annually by the Martin Eyeglass Project and the WI Lions Mission.
This year the Martin Project is traveling to rural communities in the Esteli and Jinotega areas of Nicaragua. Click here for photos.
Significant planning and resources from a vast group of participants, make clear sight and improved vision a reality for many who otherwise may have no other options. This project is made possible by Lions International. There are approximately 20 Lions centers worldwide that coordinate, sort, clean, categorize, box and label donated eyeglasses to prepare for distribution to developing countries such as Nicaragua.
We appreciate your continued support to the programs in Wisconsin and Nicaragua that touch thousands of lives every year. 90% of W/NP income is from personal donations, people who know and understand the importance of what happens when people come together for the good of others.
Thank you – working together, we make a difference.
