Where did they get the money for this? Thought the school was broke. Did I miss something?
It would be nice if all the organizations that donated money to the renovation were recognized instead of only a few. I know that Chicken Ranch Casino donated $25,000 to the project.
The YSF President did not have the full list of donations at the time of the interview, here is an excerpt from a Modbee article: "The Chicken Ranch Rancheria Tribal Council kicked in $10,000. Those, plus a couple of other grants, gave the Youth Sports Foundation about half of the $500,000 needed to complete the construction project. The rest, Crocker said, has come from donations such as cash, materials, labor, equipment and professional expertise (architectural design, surveying, engineering, equipment operating, etc.) — all from local sources." http://www.modbee.com/2012/07/14/v-print/2282222/jardine-team-effort-in-sonora.html
I used to enjoy the old field because of the several large old trees that divided the upper and lower field.I used to sit with all the parents in the shade and watch our kids football practice. Now it's a big treeless hot field like all the others. The old field really had an old small town coolness about it.
Skidmoore,the old field was a dump,that field needed renovation badly,I'm glad too see it got a facelift,we have a great community of people here,were lucky,good job!!
Rumor has it that Crocker donated his golf winnings. Ho bro!
