30th Anniversary Open House and Community Health Fair
Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 19th, 12:30-2:30pm to help us celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the dedication of the Rec Center with an Open House and Community Health and Wellness Fair. The Health Fair is co-sponsored by the Washington Island Community Health Program (WICHP). This event will include health screenings, demonstrations, helpful information and refreshments. A free-will collection for the Rec at the Health Fair will be eligible for matching in the2018 Revenue Challenge. Donations will also be collected for WICHP. This event is partially supported by a Thrivent Action Team grant.
As a reminder, the 2018 Rec Center Revenue Challenge, offered by the same anonymous donors who matched $100,000 in donations in 2015, is to increase awareness and promote health and wellness through community participation in the Rec's programs. Over $5,000 has already been raised through new memberships, Challenge Memberships, and our first "30 for 30" Challenge of the year ($30 to walk, run, bike, swim, etc., as many miles as possible in 30 days). Registering and participating in the Rec Run (Saturday, July 28) will count towards this challenge. Gifting memberships to family and friends or upgrading your membership will also count. Other qualifying events will be publicized during the year. The challenge ends on December 31, 2018. If we are successful, the Rec will receive $55,000 in unrestricted matched funds. Until then, our special Spring Campaign is matching $20,000 in donations to the Foundation or Rec Center at P.O. Box 68, Washington Island, WI 54246.
