University ceremony postponed
Tonight’s Partnership Celebration in the Washington Town Square has been postponed due to the increasing threat of rain and storms later this afternoon and evening. "Due to the fact that this is an outdoor event, I don’t want everyone to go to the work of setting up just to have it rain later today and be forced to take things down quickly," Nic Benson, Program Coordinator for Iowa Initiative for Sustainable Communities, said. "Apologies for the inconvenience – who would have thought after 55 days of no rain this summer that we would have several days of rain this week!"
Benson will be working with our Washington community partners to re-schedule the event for later this semester. Right now they are looking at doing an event towards the end of the semester when some work on the projects will have been completed and they can display this to the community.
