After more than three years of community organizing and fundraising, the Medford Field of Dreams project has finally been completed.
The project includes two artificial turf fields behind Medford High School that can be used for soccer, lacrosse, and football games as well as for baseball and softball practice; a running/walking track; full lighting; two scoreboards; and handicapped parking.
According to Bill Carr, Jr., one of the Field of Dreams organizers, a ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned for Sunday, September 12 at 10:15AM. The ribbon-cutting will take place at 11:00AM and the girls soccer team will play a game on the new field at 12:30PM.
The event is free and open to everyone. Coaches, student athletes, staff, family, friends, and community members are all welcome to attend. Hamburgers and hot dogs will be provided by Kelly’s Roast Beef immediately following the ceremony.
