Richland Center Aquatic Center Update

Local support for the new aquatic center for Richland Center continues to grow. The pool ad hoc committee has announced that Larry and Shelley Ferguson of Richland Center have stepped forward in support of the current fundraising campaign. Larry and Shelley's gift of $10,000 will be recognized with naming rights to the concession stand at the new facility. The Ferguson's gift also boosts the efforts to build the $500,000 local fundraising challenge match provided by the one million dollar pledge for the project from the Joan Woodman Orton McCollum Foundation. The goal of the pool ad hoc committee is to secure two million dollars in gifts and pledges by August of this year. Businesses, industries, organizations, families and individuals who would like to make a gift or learn more about the opportunity to make a pledge over time, can learn more by contacting Pat Elliott, Dale Bender or Mick Cosgrove or any member of the pool ad hoc committee.
