Two Le Mars businesses invest in new sports stadium
More big donors are stepping forward to help renovate the the longtime football stadium in Le Mars.
At halftime of Friday's girl's basketball game, Total Motors and Premier Communications were recognized for adding to the 2- million dollars already donated by Wells Enterprises.
Total Motors is pledging 150- thousand dollars to the project.
In exchange, Total Motors will be featured at the existing Tailgate Plaza where fans currently enter the stadium.
"I was such a large scale project so there's no brainer for us to get involved with it," said Total Motors representative Mitch Christoffel.
And Premier Communications is donating 100- thousand dollars.
Premier Communications will be featured on overhead signage in a new Business Courtyard.
"This was a chance to invest in the future of Le Mars Community and Le Mars Gehlen who share the football stadium so excellent opportunity to share with them and encourage development with maturity for the young people in Le Mars," said Premier Communications representative Kent Westphal.
The stadium which opened in 1959 will include a new track, press box and seating for an additional 500 people.
It's hoped the renovation will be finished by August.
