When the students returned this year they were welcomed by some big improvements to their play spaces. After a very quick campaign last spring and generous donations to that campaign, our soccer field was totally overhauled. The field that was going to the weeds, often muddy, always uneven, and getting worse each year. Now, there is a new field for the soccer and lacrosse teams and games classes. Additionally, the 8th grade of 2012 generously donated bleachers as their class gift
Unbelievable, herculean work was done and staggering amounts of blood, sweat and tears were dedicated by Gary Casarsa, Chris Lee, Alan Papscun and Hartmuth Somer (members of the Buildings & Grounds Committee). Grass seed was put in June 20th, just in time for the summer drought. Watering the entire field took countless hours, many times late into the night. If that was not enough, these gentlemen also oversaw the resurfacing of the black top. A new handball wall will be put in and the court will have 3 basketball hoops.
When you see these dads, please thank them for their work. Krista plans to honor them at our first home game on that field, September 24th, before the game at 3:45.
