The Mike Herman Memorial Field Committee consists of many volunteers who have raised funds and made several improvements to this memorial park. The people directly involved in raising funds are Annel Olthof, Beth LeBeff, Chris Wright, Connie Berry, and Bob Wright. We have raised about $40,000 for this great project. We have resurfaced the tennis court, installed 4 basketball poles, painted the tennis court fence, installed lights around the tennis/basketball courts, put up a new baseball backstop, built a shed to house the ice rink when not in use, installed an irrigation system, had new stone dust brought in for the baseball field, added new top soil to the rest of the field and had it hydro-seeded. Most of the work has been done by volunteers.
About Mike Herman
