FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS
It was true pleasure to watch, last week, as installation of our athletic field lights began. Installation will continue this week and next. With the rain from last week work crews are a few days behind. We are very excited about this and thank all those that have helped make this a reality. We look forward to our first home game under the lights on Friday, September 16 against Bow Valley.
