Meet Dennis and Carol Ireland – Leaving a Lasting Legacy in River Falls

by Ted Johanson in Community

Dennis and Carol Ireland have a history of generously giving back to their community. A fatal accident at a crosswalk in River Falls motivated them to act when they realized it could have been prevented.

The Irelands worked with the school district to provide flashing lighted crosswalk signs at the 4 busiest school crosswalks. They funded this project through their donor advised fund with the River Falls Community Foundation.

“This generous gift from the Irelands for flashing lighted crosswalk signs will improve safety, every day, for hundreds of students.”
~ RF Schools Superintendent Jamie Benson

The crosswalk light installation is the most recent of six projects in Pierce County supported by the Irelands.
