Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to be Held for Alcott’s Field of Dreams
Chicago Public Schools completion of the Alcott Community Outdoor Amphitheater (Phase 1)
CHICAGO, Il. (October 25, 2013)- Friends of Alcott, the non-profit fundraising organization for Alcott College Prep and managing group of the Field of Dreams initiative, will hold a Ribbon Cutting ceremony, Tuesday, October 29, 10:30 a.m. CDT, for the Outdoor Amphitheater (Phase 1) of the Field of Dreams in Lincoln Park. Please join local politicians, supporters and business owners for this exciting event!
The construction of Phase 1 of the project had been awarded to Reliable Contracting. The Outdoor Amphitheater not only will act as a place for students and teachers to collaborate in a structured learning environment, it will also be a place for the community to enjoy performances, entertainment, etc.
The main goal of the Field of Dreams initiative is to help ensure that all students and the surrounding community have access to a safe and engaging outdoor space for sports, physical fitness activities, recreation, outdoor learning and social interactions. The ribbon cutting symbolizes the continuous effort and support for this community initiative, and the committee is excited to keep the positive momentum going to complete the next 2 phases, including an athletic field and age-appropriate play area.
Mike Quigley, Congressman, Illinois 5th who supports the initiative, believes that “[g]reen space in the City of Chicago is limited and I think it is important to take advantage and utilize space that already exists to better the school and the surrounding community.”
Alderman Michele Smith, 43rd Ward, who attended the groundbreaking stated the "[t]he benefit of additional open space for not only Alcott students but additionally the community will be immeasurable.” Without her support, this space could not have happened this quickly.
The event will be held Tuesday, October 29, 10:30 a.m. CDT at Alcott, 2625 N Orchard St, Chicago, IL, 60614. For more information about the Field of Dreams, please visit http://alcottfieldofdreams.com/.
