The South Central Community Foundation awarded a grant of $1,000 towards the construction of a regulation outdoor basketball court in Lyons. Plans are in the works to put a full-sized basketball court with regulation goals at Tobias Park through a joint project of the City of Lyons, USD 405, and the Lyons Recreation Commission. Through donations of money, supplies, and equipment, volunteer labor, and now the grant from SCCF, the project is nearly fully funded.
For more information, to volunteer, or to make a donation, contact USD 405 Superintendent Bill Day.
