(KNZA)---A ground breaking ceremony was held Monday to officially kick-off the construction of a new multi-purpose community building on the north side of Banner Creek Reservoir, west of Holton.

Aeschliman Construction, of Holton, was awarded the contract for the project last April, with a base bid of nearly $380,000.

The construction company reached out to several area sub-contractors during the bid process, and they agreed to donate nearly $19,000 in material or labor for the building.

Friends of Banner Creek Reservoir raised a total of $160,000 for the project, and was awarded an additional $160,000 matching grant by the state. County funds are being used to cover the remainder of the project cost.

The 48 by 72 foot building will include an event room, large kitchen, restrooms and a storage room. The building is to be completed by September.
