Refreshments were generously donated by the Ford Family Foundation. Here are some remarks from the Roseburg School District shared with attendees today: "A Field of Possibilities This project is a shining example of what can be accomplished when our community works together to support students and their education. By increasing equity and expanding opportunities for students, this field serves as an asset for both our community and our school district. We would like to thank everyone involved in bringing this field to life over the past year of construction. Our community's children deserve quality and safe facilities for learning, playing sports, and participating in extracurricular activities. As we continue efforts to provide our youth with the same quality experiences as those in urban regions of the state, we look forward to what we can accomplish next. Thank you for joining us as we celebrate the completion of this project. This field is about more than turf; it is a reflection of how our community can thrive when we come together in service to our children. Special thanks to everyone who made this project possible: i.e. Engineering Knife River Materials Dirty M Hauling Kelly Bunner Trucking Willard Boyd Trucking Dean Logging Native Rock Trucking Basco Logging Umpqua Valley Asphalt James Pruitt Trucking Lee Roy Belloli & Sons Russell Concrete Landmark Surveying Western Testing Pinnacle Engineering Ling Bros Contracting Quality Fence Signcraft Double R Powder Coating Cornerstone Enterprises Central Electric North Umpqua Plumbing Tonka Excavation Roseburg School District Maintenance Team City of Roseburg Roseburg Urban Sanitary Authority Our Laurelwood neighbors" The Roseburg Girls softball team will play their first home softball game on the new field tomorrow, Wednesday March 13th against Sunset at 4:30pm.
