Cassville R-IV Board of Education Committed to the Golden Community Center
After a unanimous vote of support by the Cassville R-IV Board of Education, the Cassville School District approved providing up to $1,500 to the Golden Community Center to be used to replace windows on the east side of the building.
The community center, owned by Cassville School District, was previously the Golden School House. The building was built in 1939 and the exterior is covered in native stone. The center and the district have a long-standing lease agreement. Historically, the center has taken care of all upkeep and repairs. In 2015, the center replaced the windows on the west side of the building.
“The financial commitment we have made is a great opportunity for our district to continue a long-standing partnership with our friends, parents, and patrons in the Golden community and lake area,” stated Jon Horner, Board of Education Member. David Haddock also commented that this effort would hopefully help the building last into the future by reducing window leaks and making events more comfortable and library resources used by the community more secure.
In a motion made by Board of Education Treasurer, Jon Horner, and seconded by Becky Henningson, the board unanimously agreed to support this project.
The community center is run by the Golden Circle Shores Board of Directors. The center is used for voting, road commissioner meetings, local special events and is available for community members to rent the space. There is also a library located within the center.
“With the cold winter months ahead, replacing the windows will help our building be more fuel efficient,” stated Bob Ricky, Golden Circle Shores Board President. Kent Goude, local carpenter in the Golden area, will replace the windows. Golden Circle Shores Board of Directors include: Ricky, President, Dave Hoeck, Vice-President, Margret Fancher, Secretary/Treasurer, Genny Ricky and Rick Ott.
Dusty Reid, Cassville R-IV Director of Facilities and Operations, will help facilitate the project and will order the windows through local business partners, Lowe’s Glass.
