The Healthy Dent County Board of Directors, in coordination with the City of Salem, will conduct a Groundbreaking Ceremony for the construction of a new gymnasium for the Salem Community Center @ the Armory.
This event will be held 1 p.m. June 13 at the Salem Community Center @ the Armory, 1200 W. Rolla Road in Salem.
The construction project will be completed by Cahill's Construction, LLC. This locally-owned company was recently chosen by the Healthy Dent County Board. The project is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
This phase of construction is being paid from grants and the Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) state tax credits. During the Capital Campaign that is being held, a total of nearly $900,000 has been raised locally.
Work to be completed includes expansion of the fitness center weight room, new restrooms and a regulation size basketball gymnasium.
Everyone is invited to attend.
