THE BAND/PERFORMANCE SHELL
The Boardman Booster Club is spearheading a fund-raising campaign for a new stadium to replace the 80-year-old stadium in use today.
The club’s Legends & Legacies campaign raised the necessary funds to move ahead with the first phase of the project. In August 2014 ground was broken and installation began on the state-of-the-art, all-season synthetic turf. Some teams and the Band practiced on the surface in the last few weeks of the season. Several soccer games were even played on it.
Other highlights of the proposed multi-purpose stadium project include:
· Seating for 7,000—4,000 on the home side, including 540 chair-backs with extended legroom and 3,000 on the visitor side, both with ADA-compliant access and seating
· Enclosed press box with state-of-the-art communications and public address system
· Locker rooms for home and visiting teams and game officials
· Video scoreboard with configurations for all sports and live, full-color video broadcast of events
· All-weather track and accommodations for field events
· Concession buildings and spacious, clean, ADA-compliant restrooms
· Marching Band shell and seating
THREE PHASES of the PROJECT
Phase I - Fall, 2014
Phase II - Fall, 2015
Phase III - Fall, 2016

Imagine it...A brand new stadium with all the amenities for outdoor sporting events and band nights. It will have parking, locker rooms, concession stands, restrooms, modern bleachers, a video scoreboard, and state-of-the-art synthetic track and playing field. In other words, it has everything the Boardman Schools need to showcase our fantastic programs.
One extremely important feature would be a stage, seating, and shell to showcase the Boardman Band at games and our other performance groups at outdoor events. Much more than just a band shell, this versatile structure can be used for orchestra, band, and jazz concerts, outdoor commencement, and even drama productions. It is acknowledgment of the significant role of our Band at games and other groups at various events.
A music shell is the final piece of the puzzle. Although the plans are in place, the funding for our new structure is not. The estimated cost is approximately $200,000. We need YOU to make it this dream a reality!
Please consider contributing to this important project for our students, schools, and community. Donors will be recognized in one of two ways, unless they request anonymity.
