LANCASTER - A Garrard County group called Partners for Progress is gauging community interest in a new recreational park and center.
A public meeting will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Garrard County Extension Service to gather opinions. "It's going to be a big night," said Brenda Powers, the group's vice president. "We are hoping and praying a lot of people show up."
The group, which was organized about three years ago but has been inactive because of health problems among its leadership, wants people to voice their opinions regarding more recreational activities for its young people.
Powers said she wants to hear what folks' "wishes, dreams and goals" are. "My dream is awful big," said Powers. She would like to see a recreational center built that would house basketball courts, a six-lane bowling alley and a skating rink.
