Gill Stadium anniversary event planned in Manchester

MANCHESTER - The Gill Stadium Centennial Committee, which is planning to mark the stadium's 100-year anniversary with a rededication, said Members First Credit Union is the corporate sponsor for the event.

The anniversary will be celebrated Sept. 8 with a ceremony featuring football, soccer and fireworks.

Originally called Textile Field, Gill Stadium was built for the semi-professional Manufacturer's Baseball League. Most people are familiar with it as a site for high school sports, although the New Hampshire Fisher Cats played their 2004 home schedule there while what is now Northeast Delta Dental Stadium was under construction on the banks of the Merrimack River.

Major sponsors for the centennial event include Anagnost Companies, Centrix Bank, Granite Staste Credit Union, American Legion Post 21, Merrimack County Voiture of the Forty and Eight and the Union Leader Corporation.

Anyone interested in becoming involved in the event as a contributor or volunteer is asked to contact committee member Mike Lopez at 669-8058 or aldmjl@comcast.net.
