John Swanson called to order the March 13 Streator Kiwanis Club meeting. Jerry Myers gave the opening prayer. Special guests in attendance were Baily Stipp, president elect, and Elena Olschaeger, treasurer, of the Woodland Key Club. Andy Masters and De Salata were program chairs. Josh Biros, from Streator YMCA, spoke about the expansion this summer. It will be about an $11 million project. OSF has donated $1 million and the other is the expense of the YMCA. It will be a 5,000-square-foot expansion. The main focus will be a workout room full of cardiovascular equipment for members and cardiac patients from the hospital. There will be a kids zone with several interactive games and equipment that will be fun and provide exercise for children. Biros said this will be a four-month build time.
The next meeting will be at noon Tuesday, March 20, at Eastwood Restaurant in Streator.
