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

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!!
