On Wednesday afternoon under bright blue skies, the Greenwich High School community said goodbye to an old friend, and symbolically kicked-off the process to usher in a new one with a groundbreaking ceremony. One by one, town and school officials, along with student athletes from GHS, plunged shovels into the ground to officially begin construction on the beginning phases of the Cardinal Stadium improvement project.
“This old friend was with us for over 50 years. This old friend served us very well. This old friend held us up when we needed to be held up. This old friend helps us cheer on teams; when we wanted to make noise, we banged on the bleachers,” said Board of Education member, Cardinal Stadium Committee member, and former GHS rugby coach, Joe Kelly, on the bleachers at Wednesday’s groundbreaking ceremony. “That old friend is gone. But that’s ok, because we are getting ready today for our new friend.”
