Turf donors recognized

Prior to the start of the game, the Esko Turf Club honored the donors that raised more than $300,000 to pay for the artificial turf at the Esko Sports Complex.

The donors had their names inscribed on an igloo sign on the side of the stadium bleachers at the sports complex.

“The Esko Turf Club six years ago asked the Esko community, its alumni, area businesses and organizations for donations to pay for artificial turf on the football field,” Turf Club Chairman Russ Davidson said in an email. “We encourage the local community to stop by and check out the new, permanent structure. This is another reason why it’s great to be an Eskomo.”
