Glendon Green and Gold project looking for fundraising

The project to increase recreation in Glendon is underway, but the group organizing the enhancements is looking for some help to get it completed.

The Glendon Green and Gold project includes an eight-lane paved track, two baseball diamonds, a soccer/football field, tennis and pickleball courts, beach volleyball court, basketball court, and areas for long jump, triple jump, shot put, discus, javelin, high jump, and pole vault behind Glendon School.

A Go Fund Me page has been launched to try and secure the remaining $158,000 needed for the build.

“We’re hoping to start some fundraisers and stuff but we haven’t yet in the new year,” said Wanda Marsh.

“We’ve been talking with our village again, and our school division to see what we can do for the money.”

Marsh says they should in November if some of the grants they’ve applied for will be accepted.

“The ground on the track has been laid out in dirt, and we can visibly see it. So we’re just gonna try and we can have it paved by the end of this year.

“It looks really good back there.”
