Youth efforts boost park project

Annastacia Iverson, a local high school youth, has been passionate about raising funds to revitalize East Twin Park since speaking alongside other community members at the Jan. 6, 2020 City Council Meeting. Shortly after, she created a GoFundMe page to help raise donations for improvements. A total of $2,475 was recently transferred into the Friends of Webster City Parks and Recreation Fund, set up through the Enhance Hamilton County Foundation. Additionally, Annastacia secured approval from the SHIFT Happens youth and the Parks and Recreation Commission for the Dodgeball Tourney funds going toward the revitalization efforts.

The efforts to raise funds for the East Twin Parks project received a boost this week from some area youths. On March, 17 teams from three different youth and adult brackets came ready to dodge, duck, dip, dive, and dodge for a cause at Jeff Gym. The Annual Dodge For A Cause Dodgeball Tournament was sponsored by SHIFT (Students Helping Impact Future Teens) Happens, in partnership with the Webster City Rotary Club. This year’s tournament helped raise $1,100 for the revitalization of East Twin Park.
