Our community is raising money to add two much-needed facilities to our recreational assets: a new and improved outdoor pool and a year-round indoor gymnasium! These additions to our infrastructure will benefit our children and families, help grow our community by attracting and retaining residents, and support our school athletic programs. With the additions of a new gym, we will be able to host regional athletic competitions that we are currently unable to do. The new pool and the additional year-round indoor gymnasium will retain local dollars as well as bring out-of-town dollars into our economy. Most importantly, this project adds to the quality of life for the residents of
Our outdoor pool, which has been a part of our community since 1967, has out-served its useful life by many years.

With the closing of the local movie theater and skating rink, our community needs to get behind a worthwhile project that will benefit the youth of our area as well as its citizens!

The new Gym will be located near the current Roosevelt Recreation facility, maximizing proximity parking and will feature:
Your support for this project will ensure that our children and future generations can continue to enjoy the same high quality of life our community has always offered. Citizens of every age can enjoy many recreational opportunities without leaving the area.Many local businesses are participating in the Live Healthy Iowa program which these new facilities will also support with their expanded opportunities. Our athletic programs will expand, which in turn offers more to our young people. Relieving the over usage of our school facilities will be less taxing on the district's infrastructure and budgets. Providing additional quality of life amenities to our community will continue to attract more families to live within our community. Your donation will support this timely project and move it forward!
