Legacy Field in Carlson Stadium Dedication Sept. 9

The dedication ceremony for Legacy Field in Carlson Stadium will be held on Saturday, Sept. 9, at Noon.

Legacy Field, the new top-of-the line synthetic turf system by AstroTurf, was installed this summer. Thanks to the generous support of donors including the lead gift by Dennis ’64 and Suzanne Birkestrand, Luther College has one of the safest and most distinctive fields in NCAA Division III football.

The dedication ceremony will be part of a full day of Luther College athletics events including the 45th All-American Cross Country Invitational (junior high races begin at 9:00 a.m.; colleges races at 11:30 a.m.); the annual Community Day Picnic, catered by U-2 BBQ and sponsored by Decorah Bank & Trust Co.; and the Norse football team’s home opener against St. Olaf College at 2:00 p.m.

Cost for the Community Day Picnic that includes admission to the football game is $6.00 per adult (children are free). RSVP is required (Click here) for more information.

In the event of rain, the dedication ceremony and community picnic will move to inside the Regents Center/SRC.
