The Madras Aquatic Center is taking steps to expand its park and rec activities. Since opening in 2008, the center has focused mainly on its pool. But in an effort to increase membership and revenue, General Manager Bobby Deroest will be offering soccer in a couple weeks, among other activities. “So we're just expanding services and we're offering more rec and leisure activities and broadening our base, so its not just aquatic based programs. We’re doing a survey of the needs of the community and going to try to fill those needs.”

the center just received a one year $75-thousand dollar grant from the bean foundation to help them expand their activities and hopefully their revenue.
