Please show your Restore PORT PRIDE by attending a critical stadium restoration meeting at city hall, this evening at 7:00 pm. This is a unique opportunity to get the high school stadium restoration funded.
Wear your Newburyport apparel (uniform, GOT TURF? t-shirt, etc.) and bring a few friends!
The Community Preservation Committee will be reviewing the application brought forth to them for the sake of restoring our high school stadium for the eventuality of installing a new, multi-purpose turf field.
It is my sincerest hope that you will send communication via your own channels and distribution lists to send word of just how important and rare an opportunity this is for the CPC to allocate funds that could so directly impact the lives of hundreds and hundreds of school age children (and very active adult athletes). Never before have they had an opportunity like this. And we have to be sure they know that.
If I may be so bold, will you please ask the families you represent to come to the meeting on March 11th at 7pm at City Hall with their kids in uniform, so that we may stand together and ask them to consider allocating funds to improve upon this important resource?
I don't want to graduate yet another class in that broken down stadium. I don't want to make yet another embarrassed excuse for our stadium's condition to a visiting team's parent. I don't want to turn away yet another kid from a youth sport because of our lack of field space that this project will begin to remedy.
Let's get it done. Not sure when there will be another chance like this.
