The Plainview Brunswick Community Fund has planned a special dedication ‘ribbon cutting’ for the Plainview portion of the tennis court renovation that was completed late last week.
With funds raised from local donations, a $30,000 grant from the Lower Elkhorn Natural Resource District – the PBCF was able to raise more than $100,000 for the Plainview and Brunswick court renovations that were installed by Tri-State SnapSports of South Sioux City.
The new courts in Plainview feature room for a tennis court, a full length basketball court, two basketball half courts, two pickle ball courts and two four-square courts.
A similar project was started last week in Brunswick as the second half of the promised renovations – with a blue court installed there of the same material.
After the concrete in the tennis court area was repaired in a few places, workers spent the next few days laying tile with their signature snap-together pieces, as well as the finishing mats, lines and installing basketball nets.
On Thursday Aug. 4, the PBCF will be hosting a ribbon cutting at 5:15 p.m. to match with the other community events happening in both parks that evening.
“This project serves as a great reminder to our communities that “big” projects that will last can be completed with community effort and a dedication to the Plainview and Brunswick communities,” said organizers.
The PBCF has already started working toward a capital campaign to begin raising funds for a new community building, with informational flyers distributed around town, and, as always, the main goal of the PBCF has been to fundraise for a dedicated endowment to support both communities for years to come.
The PBCF board operates as an extension of the Nebraska Community Foundation, and can be found online at https://www.nebcommfound.org/give/plainview-brunswick-community-fund/, or through the group’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/PBCFund.
