It takes a village to raise a physically-fit child.
That isn’t exactly how the saying goes, but it is the thought behind three recent donations to the physical education program at Indianola Middle School.
A $10,000 donation from the Indianola Community Youth Foundation covered two-thirds the cost of 90 fitness bands. Meanwhile, archery equipment was purchased with $2,500 from the Ahquabi chapter of Whitetails Unlimited and $500 from Mid-Iowa Archers.
