Kick off of a 60-day “blitz” of information and fundraising for a $2.75 million renovation project at Homer Hanson Stadium was Wednesday night at the Landoll Lanes conference room in Marysville.

The renovation project includes an artificial-turf football field, eight-lane track, improved lighting and new scoreboard and press box. The Don and Mary Landoll family has donated $1.9 million to the project, which will cover the expenses for the artificial turf and new track.
