Recent & Future Projects
Our largest and most successful project was the full size outdoor basketball court put in by volunteers and paid for by SPACE with the Ben Dillon Scholarship Fund paying for the hoops. It seems to be in use whenever the weather permits. We put in two volleyball courts next to the basketball court this spring–a special thank you to Chris Kainrad and his crew of volunteers Christian, Noah, Joey, Nick, Trevor, Bryant, and Brent. We also purchased items for the track team for the long jump and a roller for the baseball team.
In the future we plan to help with the new fields going in at the middle school.
Our big future goal is to redo much of the high school stadium including a new eight lane track, add some bleachers, and a new concession stand with nice bathrooms.
The other item on our wish list is an indoor recreation center with a nice field, track, batting cages, and maybe a basketball court.
Company Matched Donations
Many companies offer to match donations made by their employees. Often it is a dollar for dollar match up to a certain dollar limit. This can make your generous donations twice as valuable. If your company is not on this list, please ask your HR person as this is not a comprehensive list.
Become involved with SPACE!
The volunteers running S.P.A.C.E. need your help. We occasionally need help running fundraisers like selling tickets, getting donations, and helping the day of the event. We also need ideas for fundraisers and input on where to spend our money.
We meet occasionally thru the summer and regular meetings will be on the second Monday of the month at the high school in room 188 or Library. It’s best to get on the mailing list by sending Chris Boring an email and requesting it so you aware of any possible changes.
