Pomeroy Palmer

quietly doing things well


Activities in our communities often center around family oriented events. Children have many opportunities for involvement in extracurricular sports, 4-H, Scouts, church activities, library programs and safe, unorganized neighborhood play. Adults might want to participate in the many community dinner, dances or socials. Palmer hosts weekly "old-man" basketball nights each winter. The City Park has children's play equipment, tennis courts and picnic facilities.

Golfers living in our area will discover that in 25 minutes or less they can be ready to tee-off at six different 9-hole golf courses.

Each year Pomeroy enjoys the Amvets Celebration; complete with carnival rides and games.

The Wiegert Prairie Farmstead, located just
east of Palmer is an ongoing project to pre-
serve an example of life in the early 1900's.
Fallfest will be held August 15-16, 1998,
and during May every Pocahontas County
fifth grade class will spend a day visiting the
farmstead. Pioneer Church hosts special
events and services during the year.

Just two miles south of Wiegert Farm is
Kalsow Prairie, a section of natural
prairie preserve.

Twin Lakes

Twin Lakes

The most popular recreational sport in our community is the Twin Lakes State Park and Preserve, which borders our school district. The North Twin Lake is a prime summer time gathering of people who enjoy fishing, boating, water skiing, swimming or even just a lazy day in the sun. Each year on the 4th of July the lake hosts a decorated boat parade and fireworks display. South Twin Lake is protected as a wildlife habitat and wetland area. Twin Lakes 9-hole golf course is also located here.

Winter Fun

In the winter, the lake area attracts snowmobiles, cross-country skiers, ice skaters or ice fishing.

The Twin Lakes Christian Center is bustling with activities throughout the seasons. This restful and happy place hosts many staff-organized camps year round, as well as, other family reunions, retreats, meetings and special events open to the public. The camp currently has five fulltime staff and is expanding its physical site with the construction of a multi-purpose building, which can be used for gatherings of up to 400 people or indoor sports activities. More information about this peaceful place of simple beauty for the spiritual renewal for youth, adults and families can be found at http:\www.NCN.NET\Covenant/TLCC.
