MERCERSBURG, Pa. -- The James Buchanan Athletic Boosters will welcome the public to Rocket Stadium tonight for a dedication of its new $400,000 rubberized track.
The ceremony will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the new track, between the high school and middle school, with presentations by former Pa. Sen. Terry Punt and his successor, Pa. Sen. Rich Alloway, R-Franklin/Adams/York.
Immediately following the ceremony, the boosters will host a field day of events for guests.
Deteriorating athletic facilities prompted the boosters to form a committee in 2008 dedicated to finding a financial means to rehabilitate the school district's tennis courts, pool and track.
Fix JB Sports formed after voters denied the Tuscarora School District's $35 million referendum request to renovate the school facilities, including some athletic facilities.
