CRC Team
Just as the African proverb says, “It takes a village to raise a child,” it indeed takes an entire community to keep the Cedar River Complex operating at maximum levels of efficiency and service. 

We depend not just on staff, but many additional volunteers, business partners, board and committee members, and donors. Anyone who contributes in such a way is part of the CRC Team, a team full of people who are passionate about this organization and committed to its work of bringing communities together to meet, play, learn and enjoy.

Because the CRC is a dream realized for the entire county, and because one of our operating principles is to make dreams come true for those who use the CRC, it follows naturally that we embrace the FISH! Philosophy. 

FISH! incorporates four simple practices that help any organization become full of inspiration, creativity and innovation. The four practices that FISH incorporates are “Be There”, “Play”, “Make their Day”, and “Choose Your Attitude.” These strategies help create a welcoming, caring, and energizing atmosphere at the CRC. 

We hope you’ll support our team and even consider becoming part of it.
