Generous support from many poured in at the project's final deadline allowing the turf installation to be completed this summer. Throughout, Emerick SPG and Emerick Construction, the project's general contractor, remained patient and provided overall support. In the end, it was a $25,000 grant from Fred Meyer in the last moments of fundraising that pushed the Canby Turf Project over the top and into "go-time" mode.

Many have been supportive gifts of any size were much appreciated and are listed below. Support for the Canby Turf Project totals $967,558, making a new state-of-the-art, all-weather, multi-purpose artificial turf field possible at Canby High's Cougar Stadium.

Thanks to this impressive community effort, Canby’s youth will enjoy this facility for years to come. Once again, the Canby community rose to the occasion in support of this effort. A ground-breaking ceremony -- possibly yet this week -- will be announced. Projected completion date for the new field is in mid-September and will require a handful of early September CHS contests to be moved from home to road or neutral sites

The turf project has been fully funded through the outside donations of money and in-kind services, an amazing accomplishment during these economic times. The Canby Booster Club will continue to collect donations and make payments to contractors for the project.

Additional gifts are welcome and pledge payments may be mailed to: Canby Booster Club; Attn: Turf Project; PO Box 301; Canby, OR 97013.
