Rockwell City Rotary Club Basketball Court Project
 
Over one year ago a wind storm blew down one of the old basketball backboards and the pole that held it at the courts next to the municipal pool in the Rockwell City Park. A Rockwell City Rotarian asked if the replacement of this backboard would qualify as a Rotary District 5970 Matching Grant Project. It was decided to make an application for a grant for this project. The project included 2 new Goalsetter poles, backboards and baskets. It also included 50 ft. x 12 ft. of new chain link fence on the North end of the court and some minor court surface repairs. The City of Rockwell City agreed to pay for 50% of the fence replacement cost. Rotary held a dinner/dance in April 2023, to raise match money and the application was submitted in June. Rotary District 5970 notified Rockwell City Rotary Club in August that it was awarding grant funds for this project. Once the funds were received, the Goalsetters were ordered and Midwest Fence was engaged to replace the fence. Mid American Energy installed several new security lights near the court to make it possible to use the court day or night. Due to unfavorable weather in the fall, the installation of the poles and backboards was delayed until Spring 2024. In May, Rotarians, City workers and other volunteers worked to install the bases, poured concrete, and installed the poles, backboards, and hoops.

Thank you Deb Foster for all you do!
 

Rockwell City Rotary Club has awarded a "Citizen of the Year" award, for a number of years. Many deserving people have received this award!

This year our club decided that we should award a "Youth Citizen of the Year" award in each of the three SCC school buildings. There are a number of deserving students in each school building. Each  building's staff was asked to nominate one student. Listed below are the three recipients. We apologize that we did not get a photo of the High School recipient.

High School Youth Citizen of the year was Caleb Blair

The Middle School recipient was Hayden Stickrod.

The Elementary recipient was Reagan Lynch.

 

Each student received a small gift from Rotary and had their name engraved on a plaque to be displayed in each school.
