Springville Gym Restoration

To: The Citizens of Springville and Perry Township
April 13, 2017

We, the Gym Restoration Board (GRB), know there are many questions about the fate of the gym and if we can restore it. It was our intention to hold a public meeting to answer your questions. Turns out, this is going to be a long and drawn out process and to be honest, we don’t have a lot of answers at this point. But we can update you on what we are doing.
We have approximately $80,000.00 from insurance, fundraisers, and gym savings account. That amount is a drop in the bucket to the funds needed to restore the gym. Steve Ferguson has provided and paid for engineers to help us with this project. We want to thank Mr. Ferguson for his generosity and willingness to help our community. We have had two meetings, one with Lori Daniels, who is the Community Liaison for Southwest Indiana District, Office of Community and Rural Affairs. Lori was very helpful in helping us identify possible sources of assistance through the State of Indiana.
We also had a meeting April 12th with SIDC ( Southern Indiana Development Commission ) to go over the plans and see what Federal Grants might be available. SIDC is going to research what might work for us and get back with us.
Please understand, there are no guarantees we will be able to restore the gym but we will make this promise; We, the Gym Restoration Board, will do our best to get Our beloved Gym restored!
We will provide more information when available.
