George and Jacquie Gannon Family Endowment Fund

"We hope future generations will enjoy this wonderful facility"

"We were so honored and humbled to have the baseball field named for our family."

Although George Gannon didn't get to play sports as a child ("Back then there were very few, and I grew up on a farm where there was little time for sports,") he certainly made up for it as life went on. 

He not only coached baseball, softball, volleyball, basketball, football, tennis and golf, but also officiated for most of these - his record being 900 games in a row!  All this, plus George's fifty year career as a teacher (science, math, physical education and driver's education) prompted the Chippewa Falls Park Board in July, 2002, to name the new baseball field at Casper Park the Gannon Community Baseball Field. 

This fund was started by the Gannon's to help provide for future capital improvements for the Gannon Community Baseball Field.  

grants support capital improvements at Gannon Field in Casper Park.
