Mayor Jeff Bloemker and Economic Development Director Todd Hull recently presented a check for $250,000 to the Effingham Park District, representing the City of Effingham’s support for the Richard E. Workman Sports Complex.
“Seeing this project start to take functional form is exciting. This facility is expansive and is going to be a real gem,” stated Mayor Bloemker. “It will not only become an asset for the city, but for the region, as well.”
Effingham Park District officials are hoping for a January opening for the 80,000-plus square foot facility
