Lanesboro School Board: District clears up confusion on rec facility


Fri, Feb 18th, 2005
Posted in Features

Last month the Lanesboro School Board began discussion on how to research and develop a possible recreation or fitness center. Since then, confusion has arisen within the community of Lanesboro on what a new facility would house, and the school board has worked to clear up this confusion.

Twenty-five years ago when the Swim and Rec. Fund was created, their intention was to build a swimming pool in Lanesboro. That idea faded as the magnitude of continuing and operational costs became realized. Since then the Swim and Rec. Fund has been looking for ways to spend the money it has collected in order to help the community and, specifically, students. Most recently, the Lanesboro School Board has become involved in creating a facility that would be jointly funded by the Swim and Rec. Fund and the school district and would be owned and operated by the school district. Though it has yet to be decided, there is discussion that the facility could house a basketball court and fitness area among other things. Nothing has been finalized however.

Given the name of the Swim and Rec. Fund and rumors that a swimming pool would be included in the facility, Superintendent Rick Lamon, the school board, and Swim and Rec. Fund members are working to providing the community with the most up-to-date information in order to keep the community as involved as possible.

Swim and Rec. Fund member Jerry Post and school Superintendent Rick Lamon did a presentation at Lanesboro’s monthly community forum as a first step in working directly with community members. A community newsletter and public meetings are the two most favored methods in communicating with Lanesboro residents. The school board and Swim and Rec. Fund also plan to work together to begin drawing up rough schematics for what such a facility might house.

Spanish Club

At the beginning of the school board meeting on February 17th, Lanesboro High School juniors Amanda Bearson and Erin Jandro-Scott did a presentation and took questions from school board members regarding the recent Junior-Senior Spanish Club trip to Texas and Mexico. The students praised the itinerary, tour guide Dave Zimmer, chaperone and faculty member Chris Knutson, and the perfect balance of education and entertainment they experienced on the trip.
