The Hancock Childcare and Community Center is moving forward. Representatives of the board who are working on the center were present at the Hancock City Council meeting on Aug. 10 to give an update on the progress of the building. They included Brady Koehl, Gloria Zeltwanger, Lindsey Bruer, and Chad Nuest. Koehl stated that the group completed the process for becoming a 501C3 and have named the center Nest Child Care Center.

“It will be nice to have a space where the kids can go for recreation,” stated Chad Nuest. “It will be privately owned so not prohibited by state rules.”

“It is something that will attract young families to the community,” added Council member Bob Staples.
