Sports field upgrade at Caroline School

After some 18 months of planning the shovels went into the ground in the field behind Caroline School on Thursday, June 17. The formal beginning of the work was made by volunteers Bruce Johnson (black hat) and Jim Bystrom (white hat). Also in attendance: Caroline School Principal Nathan Moore, Village Councillor Bob Pryor and Wild Rose Public Schools Superintendent Brian Celli. Nathan Moore said that a football field will be created with provisions for other sports such as soccer and a track around the field. Most of the materials and labor will be donated by individuals and organizations to an approximate value of $100,000 by the time the job is done. Coach Jim Bystrom said that the first football game on the new field is scheduled for September 10.
