Update on Frank Gilson Press box repair

To the editor,

I would like to explain to you Cardinal fans and former football players where we are on the Frank Gilson Press Box repair.

We were able to raise more than $4,000 and we had done quite a little repair inside the press box, then we were asked to hold up and not do anything more, there may be more money available to do more.

In just more than two weeks we were told that Superintendent Bob Callaghan and the school board will approve replacing the press box next year. We will use all the electrical fixtures , the steel doors and all the pain for the inside and all the new padded stack chairs in the new press box. All of this is stored at the high school.

We have $2,000 left and we are going to give $1,000 to the athletic department and $1,000 to the school board to help pay for the press box.

I want to thank everyone that donated for making this possible. Cardinal fans are the greatest.
