Lincoln High School Students Assist Rafters With Construction Project

Lincoln Ticket Booth Story

Mr. Terry Bores’ Wood Shop Class Design and Build Will Call Booths

Wisconsin Rapids, Wis. – Students in Mr. Terry Bores’ wood shop class partnered with the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters to design and construct two new structures the team will use as Will Call booths for the upcoming season. Without having a designated Will Call area at the Main Gate and the back near the Pre-Game Picnic area, the wooden structures will make it much easier for fans to pick up their pre-ordered tickets at Witter Field.

Mr. Bores’ class was involved in each step of the process, from the initial blueprint drawing and design meetings through the finishing touches of the construction phase. Once completed, the class delivered the booths to Witter Field last week.

The Rafters would like to thank Mr. Bores and all of the students who participated in the projects for a job well done.
