Overview:

Our local school board has rebuilt our only multi-purpose sports field in the greater Collingwood area with new sod, a track and fencing.  It will be ready for use in 2013.  We want to make it a small stadium with an 18 foot permanent electronic scoreboard and bleacher seating for 250 persons.  We have had three championship football teams in the past four years, and they deserve a proper field that matches those of other centres in the area.  In addition, this field will serve minor soccer, rugby and flag football leagues.  We have been fund raising, but we need help to complete our dream for many young athletes in our community.
