Last Meeting (April 24, 2018)
- Program: Briana Simon, representing the West Liberty Chamber of Commerce events committee, spoke about plans for Picnic in the Park weekend. Parks & Rec plan to offer a movie night in the park on Friday, July 13. The Chamber would like to offer a concert on the evening of Saturday, July 14. The traditional Picnic in the Park will take place on Sunday, July 15.

District 6000 Community Service Grant
- President Elect Tommie Petersen has been working diligently on the preparation of our club’s application for a district community service grant for 2018-19. Our goal is to purchase and install a piece of playground equipment in Kimberly Park. Parks & Rec are planning a project to install a large, modern piece of equipment, and will use the value of our project when they apply for matching grants. Here is a link to the piece under consideration: Free Standing Climbing Equipment.
- Here are some photos of the equipment currently in Kimberly Park:
