Local union members, students from Madison Park Technical Vocation School and Boston International Newcomers Academy, and other volunteers helped repair and spruce up White Stadium on April 22. The make-over, which was organized by the Painters and Allied Trades union and the Painters and Finishing Contractors of New England, included painting, finishing, and other repairs. Boston Public Schools (BPS) Superintendent Tommy Chang stopped by to speak with the volunteers. White Stadium, which was built in 1945 and is used for BPS sports, was slated to be renovated through a deal between the Menino administration and Suffolk Construction magnate John Fish, but that never came to be. Shortly thereafter, a renovation was proposed as part of the Olympics coming to Boston, an effort Fish led. But with the Olympics bid dying, so did the proposal to renovate White Stadium.
