JERRY CITY — A ribbon-cutting ceremony for Elmwood’s renovated football stadium and new track is Aug. 7 at 7 p.m.
All fall sports teams from the high school and middle school will be introduced.
The first event on the track will be the Forever Royal Relay. The relay will include runners from every decade, starting with the 1950s and continuing through 2020.
“The relay represents our past, present and future,” Elmwood athletics director Michele Story said.
Following the relay, the football team will hold its blue and white scrimmage.
Elmwood’s marching band and Troubadours will perform during the evening.
Food will be provided.
Admission is free.
The Royals’ first home football game is Aug. 31 against Hopewell-Loudon.
Elmwood plays scrimmages at Fremont St. Joseph and Liberty-Benton before opening the regular season Aug. 24 at Gibsonburg.
Because of the project, Story said there will be no parking on the grass lot behind the stadium this year. All parking will in the paved lots around the Elmwood Community Center and the school complex. — GORDON
