The children of the Gothenburg community enjoyed an Easter Egg hunt hosted by the YMCA. The YMCA was the only organization in town to put on an egg hunt this year. Using their pool, they put Easter eggs in the water and children swam around collecting them to put in their buckets. A great time was had and the turnout was wonderful. The YMCA staff were happy to do this event and are planning many more activities for the community. They offer a basketball court, pool, weight room, swim team, and many more opportunities for families to be active. (Courtesy Photo)
Late March and April is a key time period when prescribed burning of pasture and CRP lands occurs. Within this time period, there are a limited number of days when weather conditions such as wind speed, direction, and humidity meet the required prescription for the unit that is being burned. With this, having a detailed burn plan is needed to make sure the work is done safely.
Heather and Leo Cardenas enjoy the warm weather with Paula and Faye Brown on the swings at E.G. West Park. With the weather slowly rising into the 70 and 80s, Gothenburg parks offer an outdoor experience for all ages. You can spend the day exploring the Pony Express at Ehmen Park, enjoy a game of tennis at E.G. West, and go fishing at Lake Helen. All three locations have play equipment for children and their own unique enviroments.
