Westborough – The Westborough Civic Club recently made a $10,000 donation to the Westborough High School Rangers on Track project.
Supporters are actively pursuing a goal of raising $500,000 towards a $4 million major renovation project for WHS’s stadium and track. Repairs will be made on an existing turf field and a second turf field will be constructed on the upper Jimmy Hayes field. Other improvements include repairing the existing track, replacing the bleaches and press box, building a new storage facility, improving landscaping, and installing field lighting.
According to information posted on www.rangersontrack.org, “the total cost of all the recommended items is approximately $4 million (this is inclusive of $400,000 in field lighting).
“The Town Warrant Article for $3.5 million was voted on at the October 2017 Fall Town Meeting and approved. To complete the project in it’s entirety $500 thousand dollars will be raised for finishing work, a new sound system, scoreboards, and field lighting.”
For Civic Club members, the donation to this project is in line with their goal of supporting the community. Each holiday season, the Civic Club sells thousands of Christmas trees, wreaths and swags. Proceeds from the sale are then dispersed to a variety of causes in town including Scout projects, the food pantry, other nonprofit community groups and the schools.
