Homer Hanson Stadium Project in need of more funds.

Work has begun on the Homer Hanson Stadium project. It was originally thought that about 20% of the stones would have to be new, but after they got to work on it, they have found that the walls are in worse shape than they thought. They’re now estimating that about 30-35% of the stones will have to be replaced. At this time, they are about $45,000 short of their $250,000 goal.

The committee has told the crew that they will not spend what they don’t have and the construction company said the best they could do, if the goal isn’t met, is fix the west side walls and the complete inside portion of the stadium, and possibly the stairs to the east that lead to the street. The committee is asking that if you have not donated to the project yet, they would greatly appreciate your support in order to finish the whole project. If you have any questions, you may contact one of the committee members, which include Jim Swim, Bill Buck, Bert Lord, Larry Shum, Sharon Phillips, Brian Fragel, Ron Grauer, Joyce Kracht, and Julie Haggard.
