The Arundel Senior High School Booster's Club is trying to construct a building at Carroll Field to house boys and girls bathrooms, a ticket booth and a new concession stand.
A sewage connection to the main school building must be obtained. The cost forthis alone is about $9,000.
Because of budget cuts at the county school board, the project will have to be financed by the community. The county Department of Recreation and Parks and local builders havebeen asked to pitch in.
The boosters are asking all the parents and alumni of Arundel High School and local community organizations for help through donations of money, materials or expertise in such areas as construction, plumbing, roofing and landscaping.
Send any donations or correspondence pertaining to this project to AHS Boosters,P.O. Box 542, Odenton, 21113, Attention: Ron Young, Boosters president.
