The RSU21 Athletic Complex Campaign Committee is very pleased to announce the following matching gift opportunity:
"Fellow members of the Kennebunk community, we are pleased to support the fundraising efforts for the new athletic facilities at Kennebunk High School. When we learned of the opportunity to support Kennebunk Athletics in such a meaningful way we knew this was something our family could easily get behind. We are pleased to offer a $10,000 matching contribution; we will match dollar for dollar the first $10,000 in gifts received. This is an opportunity for you to double the impact of your donation. Please join us in supporting Kennebunk Athletics.
Tim, Beth (Tonneson) KHS 1997, and Mary KHS 2030 Fossett
Please use this link (Friends of RSU 21) to make your contribution. Thank you!
Memorial Field and the track surrounding it have been the site of many special moments for the student athletes, fans, and greater community. Board Chair, Art LeBlanc states, “This generous matching gift to kick start the year is appreciated by the entire community as we work toward the goal of breaking ground in June for the Athletic Complex renovation. Thank you to the Fossett family for your contribution and in welcoming the community to support this project with you!”
Contributions will support these Athletic Complex highlights:
Six-lane oval, eight lane sprint all-weather sandwich construction track enabling RSU 21 to host home, regional, and state championship meets.
New multi-purpose, artificial turf field for soccer, football, field hockey, and lacrosse allowing increased student and community use.
The artificial turf specified includes a thatch zone layer and 100% EPDM virgin material with no recycled content allowing our students to compete safely while reducing maintenance costs by 89% according to FieldTurf Tarkett.
ADA compliant fixed seating for 550 plus portable bleacher capacity for 800.
LED field lights reduce light spillage, cut energy costs, and provide an even illumination of the playing field with reduced maintenance. Light levels are guaranteed for 25 years.
The complete plans are available for viewing at www.rsu21.net. Included are an artificial turf field that can be used by all field events including field hockey, a new track with six lanes on the oval and 8 sprint lanes, home bleachers with Press Box, and portable bleacher seating for expanded home and visitor seating.
