Without the support of our generous sponsors, Sports & Field Day would not be possible. At the very least, we wouldn’t have any free water or soda, no food at all for the picnic lunch, no money to buy the awards/trophies or have them engraved, and no cool prizes to give away. Our sponsors support this event and many others throughout the year.
