CONCESSION STAND WORK: (NOTE: Between meetings, officers voted and approved authorizing up to $1,500 to update the sink, countertop and faucet in the outdoor concession stand.

Mr. Dukes is working on the trophy cases. He will work with John Zirkle when John’s work slows down later this fall.
Mr. Dukes would like for us to consider putting sod where the new rock is. Boosters agreed to review it at the end of the season.
