CHECK THIS OUT! This Spring, we showed you pictures and video of Terra Lake being stocked with breeding-size largemouth bass. We're happy to report that they have spawned well and most are now two to three inches in size! Some are even as long as four inches. Check out this new video of the fish! We want to stress that fishing is NOT allowed at Terra Lake until 2017 in order to allow the fish time to grow. Channel catfish will be added to Terra Lake this Fall. Visit to learn more.
With a smile on her face, Mayor Paula Dierenfeld is starting off her 381 miles in this bitter cold weather! Thank you to everyone who dropped off food and monetary donations to support the Johnston Partnership! All the donations stay right here within the Johnston community.

Sundae in the Park is a great opportunity to get the kids ready to head back to school. Join the City of Johnston, Johnston Community School District and Johnston Community Education on Sunday, August 12 for an evening of music and ice cream with an extra sprinkle of fun.

A variety of youth organizations will be in Simpson Barn providing information on youth activities as we look toward the school year! Come see what groups your child can be involved with outside of school. City departments and school administrators will be scooping free ice cream so we encourage you to come meet them.

You can also hop into the cab of a snow plow, explore a fire engine and sit in a Johnston police vehicle. All activities are open from 6-8 p.m. at The Simpson Barn, located at 6169 Northglenn Drive in Johnston. We hope to see you there!
