Rubick Field Renovation Project Summary

Ron Rubick Municipal Field has a long rich history in Manitowoc dating back to its origin in 1955, a history that resonates with all current community members, and past Alumni of Manitowoc schools. From football to soccer, track and field to cheer, and dance teams to marching band, Roncalli Football and the Manitowoc Lutheran Track Team, many memories have been performed and shared there during the high school years of so many. 
Project Description:
After a multitude of years of competition on this historic community field the grass surface and landscape have taken on an enormous amount of wear and tear.  The worn conditions of the field have become significant and are of concern to the safety of the athletes in our community.  The grass surface is very uneven and there are sinking areas throughout and around the field.  This is causing unsafe playing conditions for all athletic groups using the facility. Additionally, the lighting and sound system is in need of major upgrading. This project is all encompassing and will include the conversion to a turf field, sound system, and lighting.

We are working against the clock to fund this project; our goal is to cut the ribbon for this new field at the first varsity home football game on Thursday, August 17, 2017. In order to have it completed in time we need to reach our project goal by May 15th, 2017. This project has been estimated to cost $972,000 to complete; currently we have a few major donors that will be announced in the coming days. A number of community members have invested countless hours of their time meeting with local businesses, but we have a large gap of funds we still need to fill, in order to complete this project and make it a reality for the fall of 2017 now is the time to reach out to you as members of our community, to ask for your support.

Do you ever wonder where the money comes from that fund the various school programs that our youth are participating in? Most of it doesn't come from the school district or from city funds. It comes from parents, businesses, community members, or alumni, that all have one thing in common, they genuinely care about the future of our youth, the future of our community, the vitality of our school district and communities.

So how do we get the funds we use? That’s easy, through the financial support of people like you. As a community member or past alumni, we know you support keeping our youth active & healthy. Would you help us further our efforts with a tax deductible donation of $50, $100, $200 or more?  

Make us proud Manitowoc, now is the time, we know there are thousands of people out there in Manitowoc or Alumni that have moved away, that still have fond memories that are still very alive from your years spent at Rubick Field – donate today, share this page today, tomorrow, and every day for the next month, help us make this happen, make us proud!! After you’ve shared this, do your part, and reach further, tell your friends, families, co-workers, teachers and neighbors about the page, and encourage them to donate to make this happen for our youth, and for our community.
