Elm Street Field Fundraising Campaign

September 29, 2011 - MILO - By Paul Bradeen

The Elm Street Athletic Field complex has been the subject of a major capital fund raising campaign this spring and summer. The goals are to provide some needed maintenance to the soccer, softball and baseball fields. to resurface the tennis courts, to build two new dugouts and to build a new multi purpose building that will include a new concession stand with two handicap accessible restrooms and space for equipment storage. The cost for these projects is $71,000 of which $65,500 has been raised.

The field maintenance and tennis court resurfacing has been completed. The concrete has been poured for the multi purpose building and the framing will begin next week with completion expected by mid to late October.

Fund raising efforts are ongoing to raise the remaining $5,500 and anyone wishing to contribute to this community effort can make donations payable to: Milo Recreation Department, Pleasant Street, Milo, ME 04463.
