11th Hour Auditorium update

Thanks to John Winga for reminding us that Michigan State is in the Sweet 16. That's great.

Congratulations to US Bank's Steve Slaubaugh on becoming a Paul Harris Fellow. Congratulations also to Emory Van Gerpen and Lending Hands' Susan Wellington on becoming a two-time Paul Harris Fellow.


New Auditorium Committee Co-Chair, Bob Youngquist gave us some great information about the proposed new $7 million auditorium that is being planned at the new Washington High School.

It is fabulous to see that on April 1st, 68.6% of voters approved a bond referendum of $1.1 million toward that $7 million project. That goes along with the $2.4 million raised in private donations, and a $2.5 million grant from the Washington County Riverboat Foundation. The Committee has an application for $1.4 million in to the state's Vision Iowa board of directors.

Here is the (unofficial) voter results for Washington:


April 3: John Winga
April 10: Bob Kennedy
April 17: Myron Graber
April 30: 2-4pm - Kids Against Hunger @ Riverside Casino ***
