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!

We are almost through our first year being in the Annex! I wore many hats over the last year as I was new to the remodeling experience. Challenges were overcome with the assistance of many so I want to say THANK YOU to each of you who answered my questions of various subjects, your input was invaluable! A huge Thanks to the SRC Board for supporting this endeavor.
You are encouraged to contact Jan at anytime if you have a problem, concern or any comment.
