This was a followup to the efforts by the C.E.F. with their annual golf tournament to raise funds for grants for Collinsville teachers and students. (L-R) Front row: Bill Thomas, Steve Branen and Tharyn Nachtigall. Back Row: Travis Linzy, Clint Smith, Mark Ehnen and Demetrius Kamalakis. (Previous Coverage: Masons ... CEF)
Dirt moving continues as the ground is prepared for the new CHS track just west of Collinsville High School. If all goes well the initial track phase could be completed in November 2006. (previous)
For many years the only Collinsville track was the grass of the Sallee Football Field as seen above in this 1966 photo of an elementary track meet. Sallee Field is still used for informal elementary track events in 2006.
Apparently Collinsville had a "race track" in 1929 which allowed Collinsville to host the County Track meet.
The Collinsville Masonic Lodge was one of several organizations involved in the corner stone ceremony for City Hall as it was being built in 1913.
