Howland Community Stadium Foundation receives a $10,000 donation

Posted: Updated:

HOWLAND, Ohio - The Howland Community Stadium Foundation is $10,000 closer to its renovation goal.

A check was presented Friday evening by the Home Savings Charitable Foundation.

The school hopes to raise enough money to completely renovate and modernize the Howland Community Stadium.

Friday's donation will go toward the second most expensive part of the project, the artificial turf.

"It allows us to use the field year round, allows us to play multiple sports, allows the students to be able to train better and more often on the field. It enhances all of our sports, it enhances the marching band it allows them to train on a better facility and allows them to get more precise in their drills", said Kevin Wyndham, Howland Community Stadium Foundation.

When completed, the new stadium is expected to save the district about one million dollars or more over 10 years by reducing maintenance and costs of upkeep.
