COMMUNITY CORNER: RECENT HAPPENINGS
The Boys and Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida and the Jaguars celebrated the grand opening of the new state-of-the-art multi-purpose field at Clanzel T. Brown Park alongside partners Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation, Group 1001 and the City of Jacksonville. This marks community field number 17 in northeast Florida — a total investment of $1.5 million dollars by the Jaguars and the NFL Foundation.
The Jaguars teamed up with Stahl-Meyer Foods to bring an unforgettable end-of-the-school-year celebration and field day to OUTEAST Long Branch Elementary School students.
Special Olympics Florida athletes signed one-day contracts to become a Jaguar for a day, receiving custom Jaguars jerseys to suit up in uniform before taking the field with Jaguars rookie players.
HUDDLE UP JACKSONVILLE: THE NEXT DRIVE
Jaguars President Mark Lamping recently led a series of 14 Stadium of the Future community huddles across Jacksonville from June 12-22. Thank you to everyone who attended! Area residents could see the latest conceptual renderings and discover the Jaguars’ vision for a reimagined stadium and surrounding sports and entertainment district. Lamping answered questions in an open forum at the end of each presentation. We will soon share how we plan to address community questions and our next steps. If you like what you saw, encourage your friends to subscribe to our updates.
