Medway Athletic Enhancement Project Update – February 2018

Over the last year, the committee, Thames Valley District School Board and Engineering Consultant have been busy finalizing the design specification, performing site soil tests and developing the tender documents.

The Ilderton and District Lions Clubs have been actively soliciting donations from businesses, other service clubs and individuals as well as holding fundraising events such as golf tournaments.

The good news is that we have collected sufficient funds to proceed with the issuance of the tender for the track replacement and steeple chase/water jump upgrade, scheduled for early March with the hope that we will have shovels in the ground in April/early May timeframe.

To complete the project, which includes new long and triple jump pits and runways and pole vault runways, a high jump apron, and discus area, we will need approximately an additional $200,000.00

To make a donation, forward a cheque to

the Ilderton & District Lions Club
P.O. Box 23
Ilderton, Ontario, N0M 2A0

Help us to provide a facility that will allow our current and future students reach their full potential not only in track and field and other sports but also as valuable, healthy members of our community.
