CARE for Kids has already raised money to help install new bleachers at the football field. Donations are being sought for a concession stand/rest room/storage building near the home bleachers. Water and sewer lines are in place at the building site, and construction could commence next year.
Board members also learned that dozens of elementary students will have received special dental care from a mobile clinic sponsored by Ronald McDonald Charities.
Up to 200 eligible students at Lakeshore Primary and Gateway Elementary schools were expected to be treated by the clinics’ dentists and hygienists, said Liesl Blackwell, Gateway principal. The clinic will return next month and in May for follow-up work.
