Construction is Underway!
We officially broke ground on the Miracle Field with a community-wide celebration on August 6th, 2016. Nearly 400 friends joined us for the morning's festivities, including spunky 6-year-old Weston Donolli, who will be among thousands of kids who will benefit from this multipurpose facility. To date, we have raised just over $1.1 Million toward this phase of the project, and will continue to work to raise an additional $800,000 to support construction of the adjacent amenities (accessible restrooms, concession stand, pavilion, and barrier-free playground).
Taylor, The Builders, began working shortly after the ceremonial groundbreaking. So far, we have established the replacement field, and grass has been planted and is already growing. The Miracle Field is now ready for use, with all earthwork completed, and the playing area and parking lot repaired. The concrete walkways are complete, giving connectivity to the playground area and parking lot. Electric, water and sewer work have been completed as well.
Next on deck, is the fencing, dugouts, scoreboard, and flagpole. The restroom, concession stand and pavilion will be constructed in the spring 2018. This will complete phase one of the project.
We look forward to opening the field in August 2017 and will then refocus our energies on raising funds for our community’s first and only barrier-free playground!
