We have received many generous donations from the community on behalf of my brother James.   He was a kid who loved life, and with your help we have renovated the basketball courts at Keysa Park.  The courts have been one of the ways we grew together as brothers. Now that the courts are completed, other kids have the opportunity to enjoy life the way I did with my brother.

Our next project is to offer college scholarships to students who have participated in both music and athletic programs while in high school.   James played the trumpet and he was on the Varsity swim team while in eighth grade at the Middle School. You can view the scholarship details here.

If you wish to make a donation via check, please make it payable to James Metz Memorial Fund and mail to:

    Donovan, I think what you are doing is a wonderful tribute to your brother. I hope the donation I left for you at the funeral home is put toward this project. Lancaster will remember James, and your generosity, forever. You are a remarkable young man!
