Shelters Going Up at the Soccer Complex

The Kiwanians are at it again. Last Saturday, August 15, the Cedar Falls Kiwanis Rough Risers and a team from Cedar Falls Kohl's began building a shelter for the Cedar Valley Soccer Complex. This is the 4th shelter that the club has built for the complex. Unlike the other wall-less weather shelters they built before, this walled shelter was created to house equipment and supplies.

The workers began at 8:00 AM and spent most of the day measuring, cutting, hammering and laughing. This project is the joining together of master craftsmen and those who are less experienced but willing to swing a hammer or carry a board.

This shelter is one of 9 shelters that the club has committed to completing. They built 2 shelters last summer and still have another weather shelter to build this summer. The two shelters that were built this year were funded through two grants: one from John Deere and another through the Blackhawk Gaming Commission.
