Russell Rec Meets Matching Grant Goal

RRC LogoIt went down to the final day, but the Russell Recreation Commission was able to reach their matching grant goal on Thursday.

More than 20 donors gave to the drive which began earlier this year when a local family pledged to give $25,000 if another $25,000 could be raised by Aug. 1.

Russell Recreation Director Mike Blanke says he and the board cannot thank everyone enough for their generous donations... 

Donors are being recognized for their contribution by having their name placed on a metal plaque in the entrance way of the Russell Recreation Center.

The goal of the matching grant drive was to finish the original donation drive that began in 2012 to cover all the costs incurred to get the Rec Center off the ground and open.
