Aquatic Center Ground Breaking 'An Amazing Day' For Glenwood

Sunny skies and swimming-like temperatures prevailed Friday as city officials and other dignitaries took part in a formal ground breaking ceremony for the Glenwood Aquatic Center.

The 8,700 square-foot facility will be built on land adjacent to a new gymnasium going up at Glenwood Community High School. Glenwood city administrator Brian Kissel told the crowd gathered at Friday’s ceremony that construction will take about a year.
