After generous donations and six months of volunteer labor, All Saints Field saw its first action ever Sept. 22.
Football/soccer field is the product of a collaborative effort between Our Lady of the Greenwood and St. Francis and Clare parishes. OLG has enough players and funding for teams but is without its own field and landlocked. St. Francis, on the other hand, has acres of excess land, but students in grades 3-8 are currently enrolled at OLG and participating on the Eagles
