JAMESTOWN, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – The Jamestown Parks and Recreation Foundation announced a pivotal donation that will go towards the first goal of Phase II at the Two Rivers Activity Center.
The donation will help fund outdoor water at TRAC, something the community has been very passionate about.
“The generosity of this gift is immeasurable, we are over half way to meeting our first goal,” stated TRAC Facilities Manager Amy Walters. “Because of this donation, TRAC is able to move forward with the planning and design phase leading to an anticipated construction start in 2019.”
Longtime Jamestown resident Shirley Rolfs Meidinger was intrigued by the role TRAC plays in the community and wanted to help support the outdoor water project.
“I have been proud of the good works by my husband, and feel that now with this gift, we together leave our legacy of giving for Jamestown,” Meidinger stated.
Shirley and her husband Roland were active community members serving on many organization boards and service groups. Roland passed away from June 4th, 2006 and Shirley current lives in Minnesota.
Phase II of TRAC is being funded by donations led by a Capital Campaign. A prioritized list of items includes outdoor water, an endowment fund, indoor playground, climbing wall, racquetball/walleyball courts and an additional gymnasium.
In September at the one year anniversary of the TRAC facility opening, it was announced that the fundraising group was approaching their first $1 million for the $12 million phase.
