Construction to Begin on Heckart Community Center

SEDALIA, MO — A groundbreaking ceremony was recently held for the Heckart Community Center in Sedalia, Missouri. The 92,000-square-foot community center will be built on the former Jennie Jaynes Stadium site.

Over 300 people were in attendance at the outdoor ceremony including several local dignitaries. Members of the Sedalia Park Board, Sedalia City Council, Sedalia School District 200, Sedalia School Board, Sedalia Senior Center, PARIC Corporation, the Yes-Yes Committee, SFS Architecture, and others helped break ground.

Also in attendance was Sue Heckart, the project's benefactor and long-time Sedalia philanthropist.

"A community center is a representation of what our community can do together," Heckart said. "It is made possible by your approval of the tax levy, and I thank you. I also want to thank the families who have entrusted their loved ones to my family. My gift today is your gift. Our shared commitment ensures the Heckart Community Center will create a welcoming space that enhances our lives. My mother would be proud today, because this project embraces her adage, as it allows us to care, share, and love. I thank you from the bottom of my heart."

PARIC pairs a range of construction services to offer building and service experience. Services range from consulting and construction management to design/build and general contracting services.
