Working under the lights

Saturday, April 13, 2019

The sod on the football field at Charles Bland Stadium hasn't seen its last days. It is being put to good use at the Grant Street baseball fields and various other locations to re-sod and improve the area. Friday night under the lights the sod was being cut, rolled and loaded on pallets. It was then hauled away to where it was needed. The sod will be replaced with synthetic turf. The lower bleachers have been removed at the stadium and work has begun outside Central Elementary in preparation for construction crews arriving next week. Dexter school staff members Gavin Miller, Josh Dowdy, Amber Duley and James Sneed were joined by Randy Potts, Ryan Duley, Allen Malloy and Greg Tarbutton Friday evening. This work is part of the Dexter School Bond passed by voters in last weeks municipal election.
