FROM THE GROUND UP
NEWS FROM THE MAQUOKETA AREA FAMILY YMCA
YMCA to begin installation of sound deadening panels in the pool area.
For those of you who frequent the Y pool you've most likely noticed that the pool area has been quite a bit louder since we removed the old sound deadening panels over a year ago. The old panels had to be removed because we had panels that had fallen from the ceiling, creating a safety hazard. Thanks to three grants and the financial support of the City of Maquoketa, who owns the recreational facility that the Y runs, we have been able to install sound deadening panels in the air handling unit and starting this Sunday, Sheets General Construction will begin hanging new sound deadening panels in the pool area. The work will be done after hours. Panels will be hung from the top of the wall down to just above the lights. Following the installation a painter will be painting a blue wave to help dress them up.
Grants for the project are as follows:
Community Foundation of Jackson County $5,000
Dubuque Racing Association $5,000
State of Iowa Rural Y Grant $28,675
A special thanks goes out to everyone who helped to make this project possible! We look forward to a successful completion!
