Mr. Schock deeded trusteeship of the park originally to the Donegal (then Mount Joy) School District, who in later years, before effectively abandoning it in 1997, regarded it largely as a financial resource and authorized some rather crude clear-cut logging. Incidentally, one of the last such efforts rendered the large clearing immediately to the east of the tower.

In 1998 a different administration, one that fulfilled the terms in the deed of being a nearby school district or local government authority, took control. The joint trustees are the Lebanon County Commissioners and the Sico Foundation (primarily an educational scholarship fund established, like Governor Dick, by Sico's founder, Mr. Schock). The Sico Foundation has historically because of this association been a mainstay of support for the park. Each of the organizations have three representatives on the board:

  • Sico:

  • Lebanon County:

  • The board meets on the third Thursday of each month at the West Cornwall Township building, 73 S. Zinns Mill Road in Quentin. The meetings can be quite informative and are a means of expressing concerns to the board, once one has come to terms with the unusual and arbitrary strictures on public comment. They accept mail as:

    Clarence Schock Governor Dick Trust
    73 South Zinns Mill Road
    Lebanon, PA 17042

    Their parent organizations are:
