Live Well Geary County Sets up Water Stations to Help Citizens Battle Heat

By Ryan Duey

Live Well Geary County has set up free water stations around Junction City to help the community stay hydrated during the summer heat.

Susan Jagerson, Live Well Geary County Director, said the idea came from seeing it being done in Topeka. They are blue coolers attached to structures across the City.

Water stations are located at: Larry Dixon Center/ Senior Healthy Together Meals On Monday night, Benches on 8th & Washington, Coronado Park, Bus stop at Grant Ave & Commonwealth, Heritage Park, and Dorothy Bramlage Public Library.

Jagerson said she hopes businesses around the City will participate also and if a business wants to participate and be on the list they should contact Live Well Geary County.

Community help is needed to keep this program going throughout the whole summer. Jagerson said donations are needed.
