Fun Fact: We’ve been in the business of making our community a better place since the early 1980s! A group of our community members (namely: Duane Worley, Dick Lloyd, Geoff Hopkins, Jim Cadwallader, Bob Knight, Roger Schneekloth, Chris & Suzie Wilkinson, and John McGhehey) came together and said, “Hey! We need a community center. Let’s do all the hard work of assessing our community needs, identifying a location, researching facilities, and tirelessly raise funds in the hopes that our town can one day have a rockin’ place for recreation.”
Okay, so we paraphrased.
But really, they did all that work: the dream work, the leg work, and the plain ‘ol nitty-gritty work of putting community needs above their own. How do we sum up the history of the Alliance Recreation Center? Well, here goes: the AARC was formed in the early 80s, the Y of the USA charter happened in the late 80s, and today, we’re simply known as the ARC with a bunch of members who have kept the dream alive and kickin’. That’s over 30 years of being awesome. Boom.
