2016 - The Year We Get Our New Home

Hawks families,

This is a good time to be Hawk! Since the ground breaking, there has been a lot of activity at the new building site of the McKendree Metro Rec Plex. This is a statement from SI strategy:

"McKendree Metro Rec Plex (MMRP) construction continues as weather permits.  The building pad is to grade and ready for footings and foundation work to begin.  The footing and foundation work is scheduled for [ week of ] January 4th. Work continues on the infrastructure for the project such as sanitary sewer, water and storm water.  SI Strategy plans posting aerial photographs of the work on the MMRP site in late January.  With weather permitting January will see much more activity on the site with footings and foundation followed by shell construction."

There is a plan to get the IceHawk players to the site for a picture as the project progresses. Once we get approval of this idea, it will be scheduled and passed along to the membership.

Follow the progress at the McKendree Metro Rec Plex site: and view some of the pictures below.

Thanks again,
