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.

GYM RESTORATION BOARD MEMBERS:
Ken Thompson, Chairman
Mark Baker, Vice Chairman
Marilyn Kimmel, Secretary / Township Board Member
Bob Phillips, Township Trustee
Denny Godsey, Township Board Member
Doug Kelley, Township Board Member
Jack Armstrong, Springville Resident

Playground Equipment Update

Taken from: The Springville Buzz – Nov. Edition

The Springville Community Heritage Group entered into a Challenge Grant with the Lawrence County Community Foundation in an effort to fund new playground equipment for the Springville Park. The challenge was a 2:1 grant. If we raised $1,000, we would receive $2,000 from the foundation. The deadline for fund-raising was December 1, 2016.

Thanks to the generosity of the foundation, they chose to award us with $3,000 total. Between what was raised through donations and selling pumpkins, we were able to raise approximately $800. Giving us $3,800 to use towards the playground.

Money wasn’t all it took to get this goal accomplished. There were many neighbors who donated their time and talents to the cause. The old equipment was removed and there is now a nice new playground structure for all of the children of Springville to enjoy. There is one more piece on order and playground grade mulch still to come. The project is expected to be completed very soon. If you haven’t been to the park since it received this face-lift, please consider taking your children/grandchildren out to enjoy it while the weather is nice.

Picnic in the Park

On July 19th our small town lost a very important historical building. The Old Gym was lost to a fire. The Old Gym was the heartbeat of our small community. There was some insurance, but we are still far from the needed funds required to replace our beloved historical building. In hopes of meeting our goal, the community is hosting a fundraiser.

“Picnic In The Park” will be held July 29th from 6:30 – 8:00pm.
(We also have a rain date set for July 30th same time and place.)

We are having ribeye sandwich platters, you will receive a ribeye sandwich, 2 sides, a dessert and a drink. A child-friendly option will also be available.

You will need to bring a blanket and/or chairs for an old fashion picnic in the park.

Advanced ticket sales start today. You can purchase tickets by calling or texting: Kim Thompson @ 812.583.8483 or Taylor Thompson @ 812.797.5649, also tickets can be purchased at The Springville General Store.


Advanced ticket prices are:

$10 for Adult
$5 for children 10 and under


Tickets will also be available at the event for:

Spread the word and help us to rebuild something we can be proud of and something our community can share for many years to come.
