Here it is 2020 and look at how far we have come! We funded the building renovations out of our budget over the next 10 years, but with a "new" building come many start up things that needed purchased. We bought all of our necessities - brooms, mops, trash cans, first aid kits and many more items that were needed to open the building. We also published a list of items that we wanted to enhance the building and these items have all been received through donations.
15 Tables and 100 chairs (KANZA COOP and affiliates)
Stove and Refrigerator and microwave (Bob and Debbie Minks)
Fitness Equipment (donations, buy-sell-trade sites and budgeted purchases)
TV’s and gym mats - (PLAY)
Adjustable BB goals (Mary Rebekkah Lodge)
We greatly appreciate all of these donations! They have made the inside of the annex a great place for community to gather.
Next up is some outside improvements. We are looking at:
- sidewalks and drainage
- covering for the gutters
- sand volleyball
- batting cages
- upgrades at the ball diamond.
If you know anything about these types projects, want to assist or donate or have other ideas, please let us know!
Just the mention of the Stafford High School Annex brings memories of good times during days gone by…. Do you remember walking from the old school over into the Annex for Music or PE? Where did you sit in the band room? Did you climb the rope? I am sure there is a memory or two for each of you!
We would like to take this opportunity to announce this exciting time in Stafford. The old Stafford High School site is being renewed with a swimming pool (by the City) and the Annex building (music room, gym and locker rooms) is being renovated by the Stafford Recreation Commission to use for a community center. We will have a fitness area, conference room, the small gym, kitchen and craft room. We will also be updating the outside recreation areas starting with lights on the basketball court.
The renovations are funded within our budget over the next 10 years, but we are seeking assistance with equipment.
We are requesting donations to purchase the following items for the Annex:
- Tables and chairs
- Stove and Refrigerator
- Fitness Equipment
- Adjustable BB goals
- Sound system
- General Rec equipment
If you would like to be a part of this community project, you may donate by sending a check to Stafford Recreation Commission at the address above with “Annex” in the memo line or you can use PayPal at the link on the SRC Facebook page or the SRC website. All donations are tax deductible and we will have a donor wall up during Oktoberfest. We also request that you keep us in mind for memorial contributions.
Please share this information with others who may have an interest in supporting the Stafford Recreation Commission in this endeavor.
Join us for facility tours during Oktoberfest! Thank you and we look forward to seeing you!
