Thank you to the people who volunteered to paint the football field this season. In spite of record rains over the past few weeks, the field looked great, every week… all season.  A special thank you to Coach Sanders who paints the practice field, mows the game field all year, paints the game field with the field crew and cleans the stadium in preparation for Friday night home football games.  It’s take a lot of time and effort to keep the field ready for football games and the occasional Soccer game.  Thanks again to everybody who helps keep our grass field ready and playable for the team.
