The Cadillac Leadership Class of 2022 proudly presents their community service project:

“The Kysor Fields Homerun Renovation”

Help us reach our goal of $25k!


About our project

Several submissions and ideas were discussed and considered this year, and, with the continued concerns over Covid-19, we felt that an outdoor project would be a plus. The pandemic has caused a large increase in outdoor activity, including youth sports. Under the coaching leadership of Eric Stuart and Chad Phillips, the Viking Softball Association (VSA), a youth girl’s league, has found a home at the Kysor Fields. However, improvements are desperately needed in order to continue playing on these fields, and to encourage others to enjoy their use. Our class decision was to partner with the VSA so that they can reach their “Field of Dreams” goal.

Plans are currently underway for fundraising events, and we look forward to updating you shortly. Stay tuned to our social media page, website, and local media venues for updates. Questions? Contact our Co-Chairs Dan Firnbach at or Liz Lobos-Nordman at

Project goals

All money raised will go towards helping the VSA meet the following goals:

  • Resurfacing the ball fields
  • Adding batting cages and a water bottle fill station
  • Repairing the concessions stand and adding commercial refrigerators
  • Adding bleachers
  • Repairing the parking lot
