FMS fields looking good thanks to donation from local company

June 10, 2014—The athletic fields damaged earlier this spring at Farnsworth Middle School are looking amazing thanks, in part, to the generous donation of equipment from Latham-based company Grassland Equipment and Irrigation Corp.

Grassland salesman John Halloran heard about the middle school athletic field damage on the local news back in March and quickly called the district to offer help. The company donated the use of an aerovator, as well as a tractor to run the aerovator, which greatly helped the district's maintenance crew with planting and growing new seed as quickly as possible. The results, shown below, speak for themselves!

While the athletic fields are well on their way to recovery, they will remain closed to activity throughout the summer to allow the new turf to become fully established. The fields will be open for the start of the new school year.

Guilderland Central School District would like to sincerely thank Grassland Equipment and Irrigation Corp. for their generous donation and for their support of our students and our schools.
