Oelwein Police and the Oelwein Wrestling Club Team Up to Clean Up


            Members of the Oelwein Police Department and the Oelwein Wrestling Club teamed up to clean up the appearance of our community.  Members spent part of Sunday cleaning and revitalizing the monument sign that highlights the Oelwein Veteran’s Sports Complex. The sign had years of dirt and debris on it.

We felt that helping revitalize this great fixture was important as it is a centerpiece of our sports complex and also symbolic of our respect for our veteran’s.” stated Oelwein Wrestling Club President Greg Parmely.


              “Our staff is dedicated, on-duty and off, to helping clean up our community and maintaining our facilities. Hundreds of vehicles pass the Veteran’s Sports Complex every day and they get to witness the great recreational facilities that our community has to offer” explained Chief Jeremy Logan. “We just wanted to ensure that we help our community put its best foot forward.”
