Love Community Center Progress and Updates

Introducing the Love Community Center

April 3, 2024

Rush County’s new community center – a dream for decades, in the planning stages for four years, and under construction since September 2023 – will officially be named the “Love Community Center presented by Jay and Christie (Kile) Love.”

 

The couple has made a seven-figure donation, which will serve as the lead gift of a capital campaign for operation and sustainability of the facility through RCCF.

More Foundation Work

Watching the foundation for the basketball court/walking track and swimming pool take shape. The delivery of steel beams means the walls can’t be far behind. Thanks to the City of Rushville for the great overhead photos!

Things are really starting to take shape! Great photos from the Rushville Public Library. Nicki Kirkoff, RPL Director, is looking good in her safety gear, don’t you think?!

The old facade is coming down. Be sure to turn your sound up for maximum effect.


A Strong Foundation

November 29, 2023

Progress is happening outside! Moving dirt to create a strong foundation for new construction. The area in the back will be a basketball court with a running/walking track. In front of that will be an indoor pool. It’s been a LONG time coming but will definitely be worth the wait.

Childcare Survey for Parents of Small Children

October 26, 2023
The new REC Center will include an early learning childcare center, which is essential for our county. We want to hear from parents in our community with children aged infant – 5 years old or parents planning to have children in the future. If you meet this criteria, please take our 5-minute survey and make your voice heard.


We Need Your Input

October 4, 2023
Construction of the REC Center is now underway! With an expected opening date in late 2024, we need YOUR input NOW. Please take this short 3 minute survey and help us plan! https://bit.ly/REC-Center

 


Let the Construction Begin!

This is a good sign. A very good sign.

 


Groundbreaking Ceremony Recap

September 13, 2023

Shortly before the REC Center groundbreaking ceremony began, an uninvited guest, the rain, tried to crash the party. Not a chance. As Rushville Mayor, Mike Pavey, said, “This will be one of the most significant days in our community as people look back.”

 


Groundbreaking Ceremony Held

September 11, 2023

The word is out. The plans are set. Look for construction to start soon. It’s time to make this happen!

 

The rain showed up during the groundbreaking ceremony, but so did you. A tent for 90 guests overflowed with umbrellas, joy, support, and pride. There’s absolutely no dampening the spirit of this community!

 

To everyone who’s been dreaming of and working toward this, we are grateful for you. Together, we are unstoppable! A community this special deserves a place to learn, play, and grow even stronger. Our time is now, Rush County.

Groundbreaking Date Set

August 12, 2023

It’s finally happening! After almost three years of waiting, we are thrilled to share that the groundbreaking of the REC Center will take place on 9/7/2023. This is a transformative occasion for our community. We will soon have a place to gather, learn, play, and grow together. The contractors are lined up. The “i’s” have been dotted. The “t’s” have been crossed. Construction costs are even slightly lower than anticipated. This is more than just a building, it’s a symbol of our dreams and hopes for the future. Let’s do this, Rush County!!
