Music in the Park

Recently, a committee was formed to help generate sponsorship to host music events under the pavilion in Veterans Square Worthington, IA. The committee is composed of six members: Jayne Reiter, Jennie Jaeger, Emily Lahr, Gene Kramer, Michelle Jurgens, Gary Langel, and Lauren Manternach.

Restrooms at our Ballpark

Recently, another committee was formed to help devise a plan for construction of restrooms at our ballpark, as well as plan a fundraiser, and generate donations for this project. The committee is composed of five members: Chris Smock, Jeff Their, Paul Engler, Gary Langel, and Lauren Manternach. The restrooms will be constructed on the North side of the concession stand and the total project cost is estimated to be $43,267.42.  We have applied for the Theisen’s More for Your Community Grant, the Dyersville Area Community Foundation Grant, the Black Hills Energy Grant, and the Dubuque Racing Association. We have received confirmation that we were awarded $3,000 from the Dyersville Area Community Foundation Grant, and are still awaiting decisions from the others.

The committee will also host a fundraiser on February 29, 2019 at the Memorial Hall and have invited “Not Quite Brothers” to perform. We are anticipating construction to begin Spring 2020.

If you would like to donate, please make a check payable to the “Worthington Athletic Association”, you can mail it to: P.O. Box 197 Worthington, IA 52078. Thank you for your consideration!
