Recreation

Recreational opportunities abound within the Mahaska Community. A sister site, everythingMAHASKA, has been developed to provide more in-depth information surrounding recreation and entertainment opportunities throughout Mahaska County. everythingMAHASKA includes the Ultimate Community Calendar which is easily searchable, has a subscription option, and allows for front-end submission so area entities can place their events directly on the calendar.

The following links proved to the most search items prior to the redesign and are provided as a courtesy to our site visitors.

Seed for Growth

In 1993, a lifelong resident of Oskaloosa passed away, leaving an estate worth well over $6,000,000 to the community of Oskaloosa. This money was put into the George Daily Family Trust Fund to benefit the Mahaska Community.

To provide a unique learning experience for Osakloosa’s youth and to help publicize the many community projects funded by the trust, “Kid’s Eye View” booklets were developed for a number of years. Each booklet strives to report on the leadership of each project toward which the Daily Trust Fund has contriubted funds. These not only provided historical records of where money was being spent, but also gave students exposure to a variety of reporting experiences and the concepts of community leadership.

Each project began with groups of students gathering information which included personal interviews. Once information was collected stories were written about the projects and the anticipated community benefits. In addition, illustrations were drawn to correspond with the story.

You are invited to view each of the “Kid’s Eye View” Seed for Growth publications linked below. A new window will open for on-line flip viewing.
