Repair & Protect IA Field of Dreams
On the morning of Jan 23, 2018, we found your beloved Field of Dreams Movie Site ball diamond destroyed by truck tire damage. Many areas of the turf had been ripped up with potential damage to the refurbished irrigation system. This campaign will fund those repairs and install a security system to help protect this magical baseball shrine for the 100,000 visitors each season worldwide to enjoy.+ Read More
We are READY! Rain, snow, mud or flood ... the sod is ordered, the paint scrapers and rakes are ready ... we are DOING THIS on Monday, April 16! If you want to join us, you may come as early as you wish. Our grounds work will begin around 8am. Dress warmly and plan for muddy shoes. We will serve lunch in the first level of the home so you can warm up and enjoy some hot cocoa. If you are going to be with us, please indicate so on the Facebook event page so we have enough food. Looking forward to seeing you and thank you for making this possible. xoxo
Argh!!! Mother Nature strikes again. Dear Go Fund Me #DreamNation, our sod supplier for this week's planned Celebration of Gratitude is snowed in and cannot provide what we need yet. As such, we are postponing our work party indefinitely until spring officially arrives in Iowa. This past weekend's snow has foiled our plans. Please stay tuned and we'll alert you to when it is rescheduled ... hopefully mid-April.
It's almost spring! We're thrilled to announce we have a final date for our Celebration of Gratitude. It's now officially Thursday, March 29 at 11am. We had to push it back one more day due to logistics. This past weekend, Mother Nature finally melted the remaining snow and ice from the Field and now it needs to dry just a bit more before we can get equipment on there. The Field will be repaired and protected soon! We are opening early this season -- one week from today on March 26 -- to accommodate more visitors who are showing up at the Field due to early spring breaks. As a donor, you are invited to join us if you can. xoxo -Denise
Well, Mother Nature has certainly stepped up her winter game in Iowa. We are still ice and snow covered at the Field, so our planned Celebration of Gratitude and work party to repair the Field has been postponed tentatively until March 28, weather permitting. Please watch our Facebook page for the latest details.
